1909-S VDB Cent MS65BN PCGS CAC Glorious, Lustrous Blue-Tinged Key Date! Wonderful luster emanates from both sides of this Gem 1909-S VDB graded MS65BN by PCGS and approved by CAC. The surfaces show a bluish tinge on both sides with deep sunset-orange outlining the devices and date and lettering, further adding to the broad eye appeal. There are no mentionable distractions … a single tick in the obverse right field before Lincoln’s eye is not really noticeable at the coin’s actual size. It didn’t bother us, and clearly it didn’t bother CAC either. You will search far and wide to find a nicer toned Gem example of this always-sought key date. The strike is full throughout both sides.
