Do you see the Indian headdress on this Uncirculated 1909 VDB Cent?

What would this penny grade? What might it be worth?

HELP!








Being that this is the first year of the Wheat penny replacing the Indian Head penny, might it be possible for this to happen?

Excuse the lint/dust on my photos

I see a fine looking 1909 VDB with a little die crack. I'm not sure where you see a headdress.

All I can see is a small die crack on the Obverse.
Please explain how in the striking of a coin that a headdress would appear.

Nice example of a normal '09 VDB--with die crack and light gouge/scratch to the right of Lincoln's nose. The apparent 'ripples' on Lincoln's shoulder are not part of a headdress.

No Indian cent showing through, but still a very nice coin. You may want to post this in the grading section here for experts weighing in as to possible grade.

Indian headdress on Abraham Lincoln? That sounds racist.


BTW: It's a beautiful coin! !
