1909 Lincoln Head Wheat Ears cent 
  • First year of the Lincoln Cent, designed to honor the centennial of Lincoln's birth
  • First coin to feature recognizable figure, alive or dead, on a coin made for general circulation (up until this coin such figures only appeared on a few commemorative coins)
  • Features the initials of the coin's designer, Victor D. Brenner on the reverse
  • Only a limited number were minted with the V.D.B. initials and 1909 was the only year they were included on the reverse (they were later restored in 1918 to the obverse)
  • Mintage of the Wheat Ears design would continue until 1958 

Graded MS64 "Red" (Brilliant Uncirculated) by PCGS 
  • Since MS60 is the standard for brilliant uncirculated coins, this coin is at least 4 full grades better than a standard brilliant uncirculated coin
  • Coin has also been certified as "Red"
  • Copper coins tend to change color over time, even uncirculated coins can change in color
  • When evaluating coins, the color is taken into consideration and typically is broken into three categories: Red, Red-Brown, and Brown. The more red, the more desirable.
  • PCGS is an independent, third-party grading company

Encapsulated in an PCGS slab 
  • Helps protect the coin's graded condition during storage and display
