This 1909-S VDB Lincoln cent, advertised as a PCGS MS64RB looks fake.

Look at the holder. The edges of it have been smashed.

No reverse image.

No sale.

A few things about the listing leans to a fake . Weak photos , no reverse pic , no returns . Just sayin .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

The holder it self I agree looks like it was cracked open. Is there any way to look at the true view from the cert number?

Using the holder number I looked up the coin on the PCGS website. It comes back to an '09 S VDB, but no trueview available (per note on the webpage).

Based on everything, even if I could easily afford it I'd be running from that listing. And a tampered holder is the same as no holder. Mixed with the horrible photos....the only thing the add is missing is a red flag as the background.

With 8 buy/sells and $3g for a coin that looks cleaned run-run-run.
