The 1909 San Francisco, California-minted "VDB" Wheat Cent is considered to be one of the more valuable Wheat Pennies for collectors. VDB was the designers initials, Victor David Brenner.

The designer put his initials between the stalks of wheat on the lower reverse side.  There were only 484,000 of these produced because the public didn't like the fact that Brenner's initials were so prominently displayed.

How Valuable Is The 1909-S VDB Wheat Penny?

It's a fact that these Wheat Pennies with poor quality have sold for hundres of dollars.  A high grade can go for as much as $6,000 to $12,000 dollars!
