If I collected low ball coins, yes I buy it.
The grade wouldn't stop me from purchasing it. What would stop me is any problems I see to the coin itself or a coin that is overgraded for its condition.
Your "let's pretend" about the S VDB is... oddly specific, though. I don't think it's easy for a mintmark to wear into illegibility on a Lincoln cent, even at AG03 -- it's far from the rim and in a recessed area. There are weak-VDB 1909-S coins, but I've never heard of a weak-S variety.
If you can only make out a bit of the S when you stare really hard, I'd worry that you're seeing a hit or other damage, and your eyes and brain are turning it into what you want to see.
Yep. I have seen tons of "phantom D" 1916 D dimes in folders. Your mind will try to see what you want to see.
Most S VDBs were saved. An AG S VDB is probably 1000 times rarer than a MS example.
Well AG is still a grade and the 09 S VDB is so rare and hard to obtain without great cost I think a good solid AG graded coin should still fetch what do y'all think 175. - 200? I guess my point is for a penny there is still value there
Rare yea but not impossible I figured that is why I got it was because it was not easy to identify
Does it even exist out there? Lowest I've seen was a NGC graded VG8
I understand, just pointing out how rarity that SPECIFIC date would be in AG3.
Care to post photos?
It was a hypothetical coin selection
Whatever grade it takes to get that, that's my minimum grade.
