I would go for the '55 DDO myself. To me that is the king of the Wheat cent series.

I think the larger market would be the 1909 S VDB, I would go for that if for investment.

1909S VDB, assuming that you want to choose between this and the other.

The 1909-S VDB is needed to complete a legitimate set.
The 1955 DDO is a fluke. Although widely known among cent collectors, it is still a fluke.
Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

I would be patient and try to steal two of these for that $1500. But the rest is up to you. You've listed the doubled die, the variety and the key date of course people are going to have different opinions on which one to buy.

Wait, what do you mean by its a fluke? Its a legendary error coin, its what 99% of people would think of when someone asks them whats best doubled die on a US coin. Would you consider something like the 43 copper or 44 steel cent a fluke?

I have no interest in modern cents b/c, knowing my past record, I would somehow store it improperly despite best efforts and zinc rot would set in. So the modern one would be out for me. I stopped at '82.


If it was me I would go for the 1955 DDO b/c I don't need two SVDBs!

the 1955 DDO isn't a 'fluke" it's a die variety.

Yeah, it's not needed for a complete set of Lincoln cents, but it adds value to a complete set of Lincoln cents if that's the example in it.

And I don't have either of the "$150.00" wheat's mentioned, yet. I would tend to go with the 55 DDO variety first since that is where my interest is focused, but the 1909 S VDB may have a wider appeal for resale when the time comes.

Thats was definitely a consideration in my hypothetical decision.

None, I'd go with the best example 1914-D I could find at that price!

That aside, I would pick the 1909 S VDB just over the 55, even though I have one. I feel the 09 and the 55 DDO would be equally easy to move. I don't see value shifting to drastically either, so it's safe.

The Close AM Philly and Denver leave me hesitant. I just feel there's a lot more out there that may eventually turn up. Not to the extreme of a "hoard" but enough to drastically drop value. I mean, we did see 2 show up on here over the period of a couple months, granted they were Denver's.
