Haven't been into coins since I was a kid. didn't they move the initials to under the left shoulder at some point?

I think they did in about 1918 but were very small and easily worn off.

I was into Canadian cents and still have a near complete run of the large and small cents, wish some of our Canadian members collected.

Not a bad guess Barry...but you forgot the "RD" designation :)

Very nice coin, Leon. I've let my collection go dormant over the last few years, but seeing that 66+ is really cool.

Thanks Judson. There are over 160 PCGS MS66s of this coin. I have seen very, very few that have the luster of this one so am very happy. I can't wait to receive it. And I got another scan of the "S" today....it's not as cramped up as the photo here makes it look. regards

Very nice Leon. My grandfather started a wheat back collection for me when I was about 8 and last year I finally bought 32 of the 33 he didn't give me with this particular one being the only one I haven't picked up yet....some day I will. I save every wheat back penny I see, hoping one day for that lucky find but I have about 9,000 extras at this point if anyone wants to trade :)

Here's a childhood story about Lincoln pennies: when I was a kid in the early 1960's I looked through change on almost a daily basis; in those days you could still find key coins. Around 1961 I went trick or treating for UNICEF and when I got home I searched through my entire milk carton ( a bit of an ethical dilemma, I know. I was 9). To my amazement I found a 1931-S penny, one of the key dates in the series. It was the best coin I ever found in change in my life.

About two weeks later I lost it. I spent years looking through my house for it, and never found it. I never did figure out where it went. Maybe someone else picked it up and just spent it.:(

WOW that's a nice penny!

I'd be happy with anything above a filler on that one.
