CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

Catalog Details

There are at least two types of 1909 VDB doubled die varieties. However, the one that is most desirable is the Type I doubled die obverse exhibiting prominent doubling in the inscription LIBERTY and in the first 9 of the date. This doubling is visible to the naked, but trained eye – an important factor in making this a significant and highly collectible variety. Numismatic experts believe approximately 500 or so of these Type I doubled dies exist, and they command strong premiums above the prices of non-variety 1909 VDB Lincoln cents and are scarce in Brown, Red-Brown, and Red grades.
