T-Bop, I have no doubt that your wife is a wonderful person and the best wife ever.

For me though...before I met my wife I was debt free, had a substancial bank account, and always had a couple of hundred in my wallet ( pre-ATM days). Then I got married and my wife was constantly watching my spending and we were always in debt, living from paycheck to paycheck ect. Several years after the divorce, I got out of debt, own several properties, two companies, can be considered modestly wealthy while my ex and the man she left me for live in a trailer and are constantly broke, yet she will tell you she is not the reason they are constantly broke...So trust me I understand somewhat of what you are saying!

I can't understand why some of you guys insist on including the 22 plain in your Lincoln wheat set . It is not a Business strike , It's an error ! And I bet If there wasn't a hole for the 22 plain no collector would have even thought that it had to be included in their album or folder .

I feel you, T-BOP. I actually don't have one for the same reason. If I ever have the finances, maybe I will, but I don't foresee that anytime soon (and the 1916-D Merc is next up on my list). However, I've been fascinated by the 1955 Double Die error since I was very young, so, when finances permitted and my LCS had a desirable one, I bought one - the XF/AU coin in my avi. I paid $575 for it when I got it like 20 years ago.

And, on topic, I do own a 1909-S VDB... got mine when my LCS got a hoard of five (all were nice VF/XF coins) a short time before I bought the DD - paid $325 for it. I took the nicest one of the bunch.

Create a plug from an old album to fill the hole until you find "the one"? Album manufacturers do this for extremely rare coins.

Lincoln cents would require something to cut the "plug" cent like a short piece of 3/4" copper tubing you can hammer on. A tubing cutter will work better than a saw or grinder to cut an even, tapered end on the pipe. Scissors might work to cut out a plug.

ps. Thank you JustCarl for your image of that part of one of your sets and congrats on completing 10 sets.

BTW- Do you want to adopt someone? I can offer a recommendation.

Outstanding!

Whitman used the blue plugs from their cent folders to use as markers in a board game I had as a kid. When I figured it out, I used some of them to fill the holes I could never or would never fill, especially at that age. I moved to Dansco albums long before I acquired a budget for the semi-keys and keys. I still have those folders packed away and the plugs are still in them.

Plugging cent holes is actually fairly easy. The old P and D marker coins that came in the mint sets for a while are simply penny planchets stamped with the P or D. Its what I used to fill the VDB hole and what is in the 22 hole now. :)

no, I do not have that coin yet (09-S VDB). I also still need the 14-D & 09-S. I'm almost there. those two are next on my hit list.

the only reason I don't have that coin yet is the cost. same with the other two. I filled up my folder according to what was affordable & that I could acquire the fastest. I'm saving that 09-S VDB for last. at least that's the plan. the plan could change anytime for any reason, tho.

It's a special feeling to own and handle an S-VDB. Fill the hole with whatever your like, but you either own one or you don't.

A weird twist, but true story. The only non-error Lincoln cent my Grandfather (got me into coins) did not find in circulation was not the 22 plain and not the 1909-S VDB. He never found a 1931-S in change. So one year we bought him one for Christmas.
He had penny changers in his business, so he went through a lot of cents.

I think I can relate to just about every reply here in one way or another. The elusive 09 S VDB in any condition seemed to always be just out of reach for me. Recently found one in MS 64+ that I had to set down because I did not want to get my drool on it. The person selling it had several very nice Liberty nickels that I wanted as well. Little while later, I had the 09 and all of the Libertys were thrown in for nothing. I can't agree more that finally having one in my possession has been a dream for a very long time. The people at the bank where I keep it in a safety box are tired of seeing me I love to look at it often.

I didn't know this but it makes sense that they might try to create a use for them. It even seems like I have a vague memory of them being used in a game now that you mention it, but I can't recall which one.

Or something bingo adjacent.

I wish I could remember what it was.
