Picked this one up in a lot of imperfect UNC 1909 VDB coins.

Of note, the die chips in LIBERTY on these are used to determine die stage for the DDO, but there are non-DDO coins with similar die chips. Always verify the doubling first! I find it easiest to quickly see in the lower right of the 0 in the date which is just too darn fat to be normal, but the tails of both 9's are pretty easy to spot as a bit overweight as well.

Nice pickup.
That thickness on the 0 of the date always reminds me of a todler who's diaper is a little too full!
