.01 1909-P VDB Lincoln Cent NGC/PCGS MS65RD


•    The Lincoln Cent began its mintage in 1909 and continues to be struck to this day
•    Victor David Brenner’s original design showcased the Wheat Ears reverse until 1958
•    The earliest examples of the 1909 Lincoln Cent included the designer’s initials, VDB, on the reverse
•    The VDB variety only occurred in the 1909 issue
•    Just 4 days after it was released, the VDB design was discontinued
•    Condition Rarity: Significantly less than one tenth of 1% are in MS65RD condition
•    Condition Rarity occurs when few coins survive in a high grade making them difficult to find
•    Coins with the RD, or red, designation are among the most beautiful pieces as they have kept their original color
