1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent PCGS MS66+RB SOLD
1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent PCGS MS66+RB
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 MS66+RB by PCGS and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. A TrueView photo was taken by PCGS which captures the beauty of this coin in the best light. I have owned dozens of high grade 1909 VDB cents and this is one of the more attractive examples I have seen. On both sides, the coin is toned with bright centers of an almost straw gold color that deepen to a wonderful red color towards the rims. The toning further deepens to a blue and green color at parts of the rim which is very attractive. The toning also brings out a subtle woodgrain pattern on parts of the coin that further add to the attractiveness of this piece. A few tiny marks on Lincolnís face are present but are very minor and only seen under close magnification. A spectacular, high-grade toned 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent.
