||1909 1C MS64 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. Indian cent production ceased in early 1909, as the transition to Victor D. Brenner's Lincoln designs commenced. This final-year issue has long been a favorite among type collectors, as enough high-grade examples survive to make the date collectible. This boldly struck, satiny example displays nearly full red color on the obverse, while the reverse shows substantial auburn toning over the central regions. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
