    Description

    1909 VDB 1C MS67 Red PCGS. A beautiful type coin, essentially unimprovable, as both NGC and PCGS have each graded only a single specimen finer. A reddish-tan piece with glints of olive, and apparently free of carbon or other distraction. According to Dr. Sol Taylor's The Standard Guide to the Lincoln Cent, the designer's initials may be found in eight different varieties, from three periods to no periods (as the dies filled in with detritus), of which the rarest are those with one period. The present coin has traces of each period present. Watch these coins take off with the Lincoln bicentennial in 2009!(Registry values: N208)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 22AZ, PCGS# 2425)

    Weight: 3.11 grams

    Metal: 95% Copper, 5% Tin and Zinc
