    I have a 1909 wheat back penny that looks to be in real nice condition. There mo major scratches or marks and the lettering and images look very good.
    The toning is clean and does not appear to have any damage created my the environment other then the toning.
    I have hundreds of wheat pennies and many don't look this good.

    Resident experts what do you think and what recommendation do you have for me.

    The reverse:
    I can't find a single nick on either the left or right wheat stocks, no sign of wear on them, both dots on E. Pluribus are clear and visible, all three letters VDB are visible, I can't see a single nick or sign of wear on one cent lettering or The the united states of America. All viewed with a jeweler loop.

    The obverse:
    There is full definition to the eyes, noise, brows, stash, cheeks and hair, there are 2 little nicks on the jacket but hardly noticable with the loop, there is only 1 little flat spot on the 0 of the date at 11 0clock. I see no nicks on the word liberty. The ears have full definition, there in no nicks on all of In god we trust. I did find one nick on the hair.
    For the exception of the toning and all that I have stated this is a very well taken care of coin for being the very first year of production of the Lincoln cent series in 1909. There is no mint mark, and the number 1 and the 0 is smaller the the two 9's in the date.

    Yes it is a 1909 VDB. Not a plain 1909.
    Condition looks pretty good, although the photos are blurry.
    The reverse looks better.

    Very nice coin. It does have the weak O of ONE. Common with LWC's.

    I'm noticing son of the lettering on both sides of the coin are thicker then others. It's real notice me E. pluribus and liberty, also one of the 9s in the date is larger the the other.
