1909 1C PR66 Red PCGS....
Smooth 1909 Matte Lincoln, PR66 Red1909 1C PR66 Red PCGS. This 1909 "plain" matte proof shows the same die diagnostics as the 1909 VDB obverse die most commonly known. As Kevin Flynn points out in his reference, the same obverse die was used for both mintages. There is a straight die line that extends from the rear of Lincoln's coat to beneath RT of LIBERTY, and some parallel die lines appear in the right obverse field by the nose.
This piece displays otherwise orange-red luster that assumes a lilac cast in the peripheral areas at the lower obverse and reverse borders. The smooth, sharp surfaces are virtually pristine, and the only mentionable blemish is a tiny, undistracting carbon fleck on the reverse at the N in CENT. Population: 39 in 66 Red, 6 finer (4/10).
