Thepennytrader's 1955/5 “poor Man's” Double Die Lincoln Wheat Cent/penny

This is Thepennytrader's 1955/5 “poor Man's” Double Die Lincoln Wheat Cent/penny.

The original model bore Brenner's name on the reverse, curving along the rim below UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Before the coins were issued, however, the initials 'VDB' were substituted because officials at the United States Mint felt the name was too prominent.

After the coin was released, many protested that even the initials were conspicuous and detracted from the design. Because the coin was in great demand, and due to the fact that to make a change would have required halting production, the decision was made to eliminate the initials entirely.
