1909 VDB Lincoln Cent NGC/PCGS MS64RD


The Lincoln Cent, designed by Victor David Brenner, began its mintage in 1909 and continues to be minted to this day. For the first 49 years of mintage the Lincoln Cent showcased the Wheat Ears reverse, which is a favorite among numismatists. This specific example comes from the first year of issue and is graded in Mint State 64 Red condition. Coins with the RD, or red, designation are among the most beautiful pieces as they have kept their original color. Early issues of the 1909 Lincoln Cent included Brenner's initials, VDB, on the reverse. As the only issue to showcase this variety in over 110 years of Lincoln Cent production, 1909 VDB cents are much rarer than examples without the VDB on the reverse. Out of every 1909-P VDB Lincoln Cent struck, significantly less than 1% have been graded in MS64 RD condition. With such a low MS64 RD population, this stunning coin is considered a Condition Rarity.
