At first glance this appears to be a 1914-D Lincoln cent. It is a real coin but is an altered 1944-D. The VDB is very light but it is there. It may not appear in the photos. A coin like this can fool many collectors. This is one of the better altered date 1914-D Lincoln cents that I have seen. A dead giveaway is the distance between the 9 and the 1. I found this coin in a bag of wheat cents that I purchased from a local coin dealer.
