Hi there. I'm an amature in coin collecting so any thoughts or input on this beatiful 1909 penny that I recently (& luckily) aquired would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! SS

    Such a beautiful coin.
    Is it really that shade of green?
    Your second reverse photo makes me think there is a possible slight rub.

    Not the best pics. The green is the lighting -- should probably remove that pic. The top 2 are mire accurate in color in sun light(ing).

    Nice one! Looks like original luster and low MS to me :)

    Welcome to the Boards!

    The 09 VDB seems to tone better than almost any Lincoln, and yours has a nice look.

    If we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place.

    I thought they were okay. Looks good.
    Yes can tell something is different in the color and/or white balance by looking at the difference in the inner insert.

    Oh Yeah! Nice clean example of a first year issue Cent. Clean fields and a nice tint of luster.

    First year of issue, and a lot of examples to choose from.

    Still...........this is a better specimen.

    It looks like a very nice coin!

    I’m guessing the color actually looks like this, I adjusted the tint to get rid of the green
