MS66 Red 1909-S VDB Cent
An Issue With Enduring Popularity

1909-S VDB 1C MS66 Red PCGS. Lots of cachet and blatant eye appeal are on display on this 1909-S VDB cent, certified MS66 Red in a green-label PCGS holder. The premium eye appeal is as expected for a Premium Gem, here boasting thorough mint luster on both sides with surfaces that are appealing even without a loupe, and more so with a loupe. The prevailing color is a medium sunset-orange, mellowing ever so slightly in the obverse center to an almond color. The strike is full on all peripheral details and the central reverse, with minor weakness along Lincoln's beard line and coat lapel. Only a single tiny dark fleck is noted near the obverse rim below L(IBERTY), and a nick on the shoulder is noticeable but minor. The enduring popularity of the Lincoln cent series should ensure that the S VDB continues to perform well in any collector grade. This piece is virtually the finest obtainable, as PCGS has seen only nine submissions in MS67 Red (6/12).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 22B2, PCGS# 2428)
