Description 1909-S 1C MS64 Red and Brown NGC. CAC. The 1909-S boasts the lowest mintage of the series (309,000 coins), but enough Mint State examples were saved as final-year of issue coins that the date is not valued quite as highly as the 1877 in high grades. Still, the 1909-S Indian cent is significantly scarcer in Mint State than the 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent. This Choice example displays luminous orange-gold luster beneath faint chocolate-brown overtones. The strike is unusually strong for the issue. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1527.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
