|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 MS66RB by PCGS and is encapsulated in one of the newer-style edge-view holders. The coin is bright and lustrous on both sides. The color is mostly bright red, with some interesting streaks of darker red-brown color running through the planchet. A beautiful and interesting high grade 1909 VDB Lincoln Cent.
