    1909 VDB Cent, Doubled Die Obverse
    FS-1102, MS67 Red, Sole Finest at PCGS

    1909 VDB 1C Doubled Die Obverse FS-1102 MS67 Red PCGS Secure. CAC. DDO-002. There are two well-known doubled die obverses for the 1909 VDB cent. The FS-1102 is the rarer of the two, with doubling showing as extra thickness on the date digits and the uprights of the letters in LIBERTY. An obvious die chip appears in the upper loop of the R. The increasing popularity (and many collecting challenges) of the various PCGS Lincoln Cent Registry Sets should make this piece do extremely well at the auction, especially since it is certified with the PCGS Cherrypickers' variety number on the holder. The surfaces are fabulous, fresh, original red with only minor mellowing well within the Red context. The strike is full throughout, with the fields showing some slight mattelike granularity. This is the sole finest Red FS-1102 certified, a so-called "Pop 1" coin; unsurprisingly so, as even non-doubled die 1909 VDBs are elusive in MS67 Red.
