Distraction-Free 1909 VDB Proof Cent
Matte PR64 Red and Brown

1909 1C VDB PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The matte proof Lincoln cents (MPLs, as series fans call them) have experienced a remarkable resurgence in recent years, likely attributable to a number of factors: certain knowledgeable dealer-collectors who more or less specialize in the series; the publication of the Kevin Flynn reference titled Lincoln Cent Matte Proofs; and the centennial of the Lincoln cent which arrived in 2009, coinciding, of course, with the bicentennial of the birth of President Lincoln.
The 1909 VDB proof is at the forefront of popularity within the series, and examples bring strong prices at auction. (Flynn also asserts that far fewer were actually released than the usually seen figure of 1,194 pieces.) This specimen shows the sculptural detail and square rims that only a matte proof can show so boldly. Equal amounts of mint red remain on each side, with no mentionable spots or other distractions and only a sprinkling of brown in the centers. Population: 30 in 64 (2 in 64+) Red and Brown, 38 finer (5/12).(Registry values: N1793) (NGC ID# 22KR, PCGS# 3301)
