About this set: Overall, the 1909 Mint Set is a great and challenging set to collect as it was a very special year for U.S. coins. Most notably, it was the year of the transition from the Indian Head Cent design to the Lincoln Cent design. That transition, combined with the subsequent controversy over the V.D.B. initials on the Lincoln Cent, resulted in six different business strike cents to collect for the year (plus several varieties). This was also the second year of cent production outside of the Philadelphia Mint and the final year of coin production at the New Orleans Mint. Several of the coins of this year are famous key-date coins and a few others are well-known semi-key dates. Additionally, several varieties exist on the 1909 issues, many of which I have included in the photos of my set below. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Thank you for looking and thank you to PCGS for awarding my set as a Best of the Registry Award Winner!
