1909-S VDB Cent, Appealing MS63BN PCGS CAC Example of This Key Date. This is an appealing walnut-brown example of the S VDB with a great strike (including the designer’s initials and the periods in between), and there is some mint orange still peeking out from behind the dominant medium-brown color. Only one little spot shows near the left wheat ear. The luster is fairly muted, constituting the (correct) grade, with which CAC concurs. The PCGS Price Guide is $2,000 for coins in this grade, and the CAC Price Guide is $1,750.
