|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 has been graded MS65BN by PCGS. This is a nice gem brown example with even and consistent medium brown color on both sides. The coin is free of any major marks, hits or spotting and the coin has average mint luster for the grade. There is also some original mint red color that pops through, but not quite enough for the coin to earn the RB color designation. An excellent gem brown example of the popular 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent.
