1909-S Lincoln Cent VDB PCGS MS66RB

You can easily tell this coin sat somewhere undisturbed for a very long time. A bold luster highlights the totally original colors. Both sides are bathed in a swirling mix of Gem Mint red/gold/pale-green/slightly tangerine colors. The colors of this coin make it far more special than the majority you will ever see. High-end gem at $6,950. View this coin and more from Round I from the F.U.N. Show.
