Why add this 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat Cent to your collection?

The U.S. Mint introduced the Lincoln Cent in 1909 to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The obverse portrait by Victor David Brenner is still in use today, while the reverse design has been modified several times over the life of the series. The first alteration occurred during the coin's introductory year, resulting in the removal of the artist's initials from the reverse. This Lincoln Cent struck in 1909 at the Philadelphia Mint before the change in design includes the initials "VDB."

Design of the Lincoln Wheat Cent

The distinguished image of Abraham Lincoln appears on the obverse, facing right. The portrait is accompanied by the inscriptions "IN GOD WE TRUST," "LIBERTY" and "1909."

The inscriptions "ONE CENT" and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" are centered on the reverse, with two grains of wheat curving around the text. Brenner's initials "V.D.B." are located below, with "E PLURIBUS UNUM" above.

Stunning Mint State 65

This first year of issue 1909 Lincoln Cent was submitted to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review and authenticated as a genuine "VDB" variety. Possessing a full, sharp strike and magnificent eye appeal, the coin was awarded the grade of Mint State 65. The coin's rich patina is a beautiful warm brown in color, earning the additional designation of "BN" from NGC.
