What I know about this coin at present is the reverse with the wrong "N" in UNITED and the wrong designers initials is not a genuine SVDB!
Now the Obverse I'm still examining, the mint mark looks to have the die chip in the upper loop? I've not yet matched it for correct location?
Is it possible that the images are two different coins?
Also, the seller looks to be an ebay coin dealer.

    Yep, Type 2 or Deep N and the dot is too close to the D. ;)

    At first glance of the obverse I figured an added VDB, but then the "N" was wrong too.
    Later today for the heck of it I'm going to put the mint mark under closer examination as far as font style and position.

    The reverse is enough to get the listing pulled. ;)

    If you want to examine it further for your own education and the education of members here that's great. :)

    You might want to start with the known 09 S mint mark positions.
    @LanceNewmanOCC put something together on it. ;)

    Well, I think for the purpose at hand I can narrow the field of possible mink mark location to just the Genuine SVDB

    Well ebay pulled the listing.
    I'm surprised the seller didn't end it?
    In any case it went POOF!
    Thanks To The Group.

    .
    the ebay sellers should be happy for you all that try to give them the chance to do the right thing. i personally would rather see strikes on accounts, that may fall off after a time, so that if they purposefully, accidentally, indifferently etc list such crap, the more dishonest they are/choose to be, the more strikes that would add up and either possibly lead to litigation (federal) and/or get their accounts NARU.

    not too dissimilar than UPI, neg feedback. it is a way of tracking and either getting in line or getting off the site. either we have some responsibility/accountability to ripping others off and breaking federal laws without abandon, or we don't. i'm not saying chop off their hands (perhaps bamboo chutes would be ok?) but some small basic record that they have had a bit of a past skirmishing the counterfeit edge would be nice as i doubt anyone here can/will track them from month to month, year to year with a significant degree of accuracy. not to mention we don't have access to their info anyway.

    what is the other side of that coin, collectors/dealers getting scammed. not something i take lightly in this world that is full of the unscrupulous.
