To commemorate the centennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth, the first new cent design in fifty years was introduced to the American public in August, 1909. The first issues contained the designer's initials (VDB) at the bottom of the reverse, resulting in no fewer than six cents in this year's Mint Set. Of course, the storied 1909-S VDB cent is a major key, but the last Quarters and Halves from the New Orleans Mint are also scarce, particularly in high grade.
