|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 offered here has been graded MS66RD by NGC. The coin has very bright luster and amazing eye appeal. The obverse coin is a bright golden-red color in the centers which deepens to a dark red toning, particularly around the rims. The toning on the reverse is similar with even more deep red toning around the rim. The overall look is just awesome. The coin has some light hits scattered about, but all are very minor as you would expect with an MS66RD graded coin. Overall, this coin is one of the most eye appealing examples of the 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent you will likely find available in a high grade.
