i think i seen on here where someone said to look for a 1910 vdb ?

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.

Yes. I posted that, and I don't think I added it to the list. I think it should be called 1910 with 09' Reverse.

Update...the 1996 WAM has never been confirmed by anybody other than it's discoverer...it mysteriously disappeared before a second attributer could examine it. There are a few more tidbits but I'll leave that to the rumor mill
