    Streaky 1909-S VDB Cent, MS65 Red and Brown

    1909-S VDB 1C MS65 Red and Brown NGC. Many cents of both design types and from both mints exhibit streakiness in 1909. This was from improper alloying and it continued off and on until the early 1920s. On this piece it is especially noticeable and most of the brown seen on the coin is actually streakiness rather than brown patina. A significant amount of red is also present, and there are no noticeable spots of carbon on either side. Sharply struck. (Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22B2, PCGS# 2427)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
