1909-S VDB - The initials VDB were those of Victor David Brenner, who designed the coin at the request of none other than President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt. Collectors have consistently paid more for the 1909 S VDB than for any other Lincoln penny, except for the 1943 copper cent, because of the low numbers of them that were made.

Did You Know... Roosevelt considered Lincoln the savior of the Union, so he ordered a new "Lincoln penny" based on sculptor, engraver, and medalist, Victor David Brenner's work, and that it be produced to commemorate Lincoln's 100th birthday in 1909. The first Lincoln pennies prominently displayed the initials of the artist, “VDB” at the base of the reverse. Responding to public outcries that this was tasteless self-advertisement, production was halted after only 484,000 coins where struck.
