It's not, this isn't the Cherry Picker's list. I had this list on my website since 2007, and I update it each time I learn of a new variety.

You should add the '92 close-AM to your list. I think several of those have now been confirmed.

It's means Victor David Brenner, and is the designer of the Linoln Cent. In 1909 some cents had the V.D.B. on the reverse, bottom rim, but people thought it was too large and the mint removed the initials. In 1918 the initials vdb where included in the design again, but on the obverse, below the shoulder, and have been there every since.

I didn't see the "No" in the question, my mistake. Some 1973 Lincoln Cents don't have the v.d.b. initials like it's supposed to.

Notice the VDB initials on the truncation of Lincoln's bust. They have been there since 1918. The image is from Wikipedia.
