Confusion;

The description reads that VDB signature is on the obverse side.
Under comments it shows where the VDB signature should appear on the reverse side.

Of the 29 coins which I received (various years with some doubles, but one of 1917 and the rest older) no one shows a signature on either side, nor traces of it.

Under 'manage my collection' most coins up to and including 1917 should be without signature.
From 1918 onwards almost all should have a signature.

Please advise

VDB is on the Reverse side on the 1909 and 1909-S pennies only.
Other dates it would be at the lower left on Lincoln's shoulder, just above the rim. It is often very faint or even invisible if weakly struck or the die is worn.
