|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 and is encapsulated in a newer-style edge-view holder. This is a beautifully toned example of this first-year Lincoln Cent. The coin has wonderful color on both sides with lots of red, blue and purple colors; certainly not your average brown specimen. This cent also exhibits strong mint luster on both sides which helps the color to pop and adds to the overall eye appeal of the coin. The piece is free of spotting and just a single hit on Lincolnís neck seemingly keeps this coin from grading higher. A beautifully toned gem brown 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent that is anything but brown in color.
Because of the difficulty in capturing the overall look of the coin in a single image, I have also included a short high-definition video of the coin towards the bottom of this listing in an attempt to give you a better idea of what this coin will look like in hand. Please note that you may need to adjust the video quality to 1080p and may need to increase the size of the video to full screen in order to see the coin in maximum detail.
