Congrats on the amazing find! I am a newbie to this coin collecting thing and even I knew that was a monster if it was an S mint mark. Thanks for sharing it keeps me very interested in the CRH even though I think I am a little too interested already.

I personally find this hard to believe but I guess it could happen.


I'm right there with you westernsky. Smells a bit fishy to me. Sorry, but who photographs their first roll, and who finds something like this and doesn't immediately tear into the roll?

No not joking, no April foolery. Actually decided to get the box for something to do while waiting out the apocalypse and bam there it was


Just for argument sake, it would be very kind of you to photograph both sides of the coin using a mirror to show us that you are indeed on the up and up.

Personally, I hope you are being straight with us.

Since I inherited a handful of mostly junk world coins and found a Venezuela 1879 1/5 bolivar - which I sold for $2,200.00 - who am I to question your find.

Shut the front door ! If it's genuine then that has to be one of the most incredible CRH'ing finds ever .

I'm a skeptic but if it's a joke it's well played (good chances it is, the possibility of an random end being a 1909 S VDB are pretty much nil). So this is most likely deliberate which means you have either of 2 things occur. 1) A collector actually did this 2) the OP is playing us.

Me I'm in the 2 camp as not many people will send out a $700 coin for s#!ts and giggles.

@merclover personally, I don't find that part suspicious. A lot of hunters like to set aside their good enders and photograph/document them before opening. I'm more suspicious of the general insanity of finding not only an S VDB in circulation, but as an ender, which has to be somewhere on the same order of probability as quantum shifting through a solid surface. Only thing I can think is that maybe a generous collector dumped it during that thing a year ago where people released coins into circulation to try to entice new collectors.

Anyone on this forum could do exactly the same post with a key date coin from their collection.

All ya gotta do is pull that coin out of your set, stick it in a roll on the end, crimp it back down so you can see the "bait" date (or mintmark) and then create a storyline.

Taadah!

Sometimes a collector will pass away. What happens to their collection? Often tossed into a coin star. So when this happens, all the gems he found are returned to circulation. So check those rolls for more gems. They may other coins that are worth a lot of money also. Take your time with these. You have found a coin that many have never found in the wild. I can't stress this enough. I would not get rid of any of those coins until you know a lot more about coins. Take your time with them.

Photograph it using a mirror? Not sure what you mean?

Where you can get both the obverse and the reverse in the same photograph hold the coin up to a mirror. Then capture the obverse image and the reflected reverse image (from the mirror) in a single photograph.

BTW - I think your coin is genuine. The find is questionable in my mind though.

And I suppose anyone could create this "fake" story but lets think about it, if I was a collector.. serious enough to have a "collection" and actually have this penny in that collection, what are the chances that I wouldn't of already had it graded and encapsulated? Probably just as unlikely as really finding ot in the end of a coin roll..

I have a 1909 S VDB, 1914 D and 2 1931 S not slabbed. I also have an 1877 and a 1909 S IHC and a Mercury dime 16 D, not slabbed.

I will say well played! This thread will go at least 5 pages.

Unfortunately that mirror photo is too blurry to show us anything . I can barely make out the ''D'' in VDB .
