|The 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent was the first Lincoln Cent issued in the series which has now lasted over 100 years. The 1909 VDB is also a one-year type coin as it was the only year the designer's initials were located on the reverse of the coin. After only a couple of weeks of production, Brenner's initials were removed from the reverse of the coin, creating this highly popular variety. This example of the 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent offered here has been graded MS66RD by PCGS. The coin has very bright luster and really nice overall eye appeal. The coin is a bright red color that is very nice and also shows some very faint wood grain streaky toning across the surfaces, particularly on the obverse. The coin has only a couple of light hits and just a few microscopic carbon spots scattered about, but all are very minor and noticed only under magnification. Overall, this is a very nice example of the 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent.
