Description:
Outstanding 1909 VDB Cent
PR64 Red and Brown
1909 1C VDB PR64 Red and Brown NGC. The original mintage of the 1909 VDB proof cent has been open to question for some time. David Bowers, writing in his 2008 A Guide Book of Lincoln Cents, says:

"The mintage ... has been stated as 420 for many years. As researcher Roger W. Burdette and others have reported, figures for proof mintage of this era, particularly for the cent, nickel, and gold coins are subject to question. The mintage of 1,194 Matte Proofs has been suggested by Kevin Flynn. Although Mint data supports this suggestion, surviving examples, including the number seen by certification services, suggest that far fewer ever reached numismatic channels."

Along this vein, the 2009 Guide Book gives the "reported mintage" of the 1909 VDB proof cent as 1,194 pieces, but then says 400 to 600 are estimated to have been issued.
Irrespective of the number of 1909 VDB proof cents minted or issued, close to 150 examples in all three color designations have been certified by NGC and PCGS. This near-Gem specimen displays bright copper-gold surfaces imbued with traces of crimson, sky-blue, and tan. A penetrating strike delivers exquisite definition to the design elements, and close inspection reveals no significant contact marks or unsightly spots. This is an outstanding example for the aficionado of Lincoln cents, and will repose comfortably in a high grade collection. Census: 6 in 64 Red and Brown, 19 finer (10/08).
