Well in my case I never owned one because I was never able to justify the cost . And I would rather not have one at all in my set than to have an inferior example just to fil a hole . My 1909 to 1940 PDS set is my baby with nothing less than straight no problem VF-25's and better . Some day my ship will come in with an affordable S-VDB .
Problem is , Time Waits For No one and it won't wait for me !

I have one so none of the survey answers applied. While the 1909 S VBD was above my $500 limit on a coin, I was able to sell a few prints and get it. I didn't get a slabbed one but I did buy one from a dealer I trust. Its nice to have a full album (the 1922 no d is a 1922 faint d)







This is the LWC first folder I ever started. This one is missing the 1909 S VDB. This one I will get a slabbed one.

T-BOP- I addition to the 22 no D, you and I are pretty much singing the same song. Out of the 5 choices....."Never owned one , could never justify the cost"

My 1909-1940 set is pretty much VF or better as well.


Afraid of purchasing a fake: I would only buy one straight graded slabbed, F-VF as well. The only difference: I would break it out and fill the hole!

Not a Lincoln Cent collector: I am

Spouse would never agree to purchase one: Not an issue

I'll wait to I find one CRH'ing: That will never happen!

Nice set hfjacinto!! Funny how the mint luster on these things (most sets) seems to stop and start at 1930!!

Yep, cost just seems to jump at older than 1930.

Had one and it was a lackluster VG-8 if I recall. It sold for way over expectations at an auction and I netted just under $900. I remember it was the highest bid of the day and a few friends and I were front row, gleefully applauding the bidder who won, as well as the rest in attendance. It had an old ANACS photograde certificate before they slabbed coins. I voted Not a Lincoln Cent collector. Don't miss it. Although I do have a handful of very nice Lincolns yet.
I still cut the lawn with a Toro I bought with the money from the auction.
My favorite album!

I don't have one, sadly, largely a matter of cost. My interests include a wide array of coins, not just Lincoln cents--so my collecting $$ are spread rather thin. If I specialized in cents only, I'd probably have one. Maybe if I had 200 spare W quarters, I'd trade them for a legit F15 1909 S VDB.

I had a -09 S VDB. I sold it a few months ago so I could reallocate funds to other coins.

I've owned several of them over the years but have not owned one since moving back to Texas about 30 years ago. I kinda lost interest in Lincoln cents.

None of the poll answers apply to me.

I need one, I want one, I have just not found an acceptable one at a price I can afford. I am still looking.

I've got one that I bought slabbed some time ago. For me, this was a coin not to purchase raw.

I was lucky, my grandfather gave me one and I had it slabbed.

I do have a Lincoln collection, but it's not anywhere near the point of considering purchasing an 09-S VDB. There are many others that would need to be had or upgraded first. I will get one eventually!
