1909 Lincoln Cent MS65BN PCGS Blueberry Obverse, Seldom Seen Finer. Ex: Curry. Despite a far-larger mintage than the 1909 VDB cents, the 1909 non-VDB cents were relatively unsaved during the first-year rage over the new designs, and today Gem and finer coins are scarce. We always buy nice, toned 1909s when we find them. This piece is surpassed by 18 pieces in 66BN at PCGS (8/2022). As in so many cases for high-grade Brown cents, the PCGS Price Guide is a joke.
