Post your 1909 S VDB Lincoln Cents

CoinHoarderCoinHoarder Posts: 2,456 ✭✭✭✭✭

Since there has been so much talk about the 1909 S VDB cent here lately, let's post some pictures.

This was one of the coins that I always wanted as a young collector, but could not afford.

I bought mine in 1992 raw for $500. from a trusted dealer. I had it certified in 1994.

This is one of the coins that I do not intend to ever sell.

For those of you who have them, let's see your 1909 S VDB Lincoln Cents. :)

    I still like it. Plus it's in an old soap bar slab! 👍🏻

    Not much to see. I bought the slab, not the coin. 😂 🤣 Love these small old ANACS slabs!!

    What does NET PO 1 mean?

    Poor One

    On a side note: Years ago I sent that one to PCGS for 'cross-at-any-grade' and it was rejected. :neutral:

    I'm still confused. Why does the slab say VG Details and PO 1?

    by surface details remaining (i.e. wear) the coin is VG but the damage sustained lowers the market value to Poor-1.

    I'm really pleased with the coin, the only pick I have is I'd like it to have a bit sharper details in the area the designer's initials.

    That can be a feature instead of a bug. I was able to cherrypick this heavily circulated example with weak designer's initials off eBay for the price of an '09-S.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    Bought this at a county auction, raw and on the cheap. JA liked it and it now has a green sticker.

    Would show you mine, but still at graders. Dealer friend and I fully expect MS64RB. Can't wait.

    Some nice looking coins in this thread!

    That's going to be a beauty as well - blaircountycoin- if it's coming back with that grade!
