USA (San Francisco mint), one cent Lincoln, 1909-S VDB, rare, encapsulated XF 40 BN. KM-132. The popular 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent became a rare and desirable date due to three small letters: VDB. When the new cent released in 1909, Victor David Brenner's initials on the reverse were too visible for some people and complaints were made. The dies were reworked and the initials were removed, making the 1909-S VDB the lowest minted type with only 484,000 coins struck. The low mintage and story behind the VDB sparked demand for the type with collectors. This specimen has nice, full details (such as the wheat stalks on the reverse), light circulation marks, and an even brown toning. NGC #2725693-013
