Condition Census 1909-S VDB Cent, MS67 Red PCGS

1909-S VDB 1C MS67 Red PCGS. Perhaps the brightest jewel in the crown of the Lincoln Cent set is the '09-S VDB. This lower mintage (484,000 pieces) date has long been recognized by collectors, numismatists, and even neophytes to the hobby as being the "one to have" in your set. Although it is not as rare as some other dates, it is still recognized as a very elusive high grade coin.
This piece is a superbly preserved representation as it is fully lustrous and possessed of bright golden-red color, just as it should be. The strike is bold with full definition of the wheat lines and other details. Lincoln's hair and beard are also quite well struck, however the V.D.B. at the lower reverse is curiously soft. This coin should be included in the finest of Lincoln Cent sets. It is the single finest example Heritage Galleries has had the pleasure to offer at public auction since we began keeping records. Population: 9 in 67, none are finer at either service (3/05).
From The Tom Mershon #2 All-Time PCGS Registry Set of Lincoln Wheat Cents.(#2428) (Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 22B2, PCGS# 2428)
