Ok I'm sorry I saw popular bids and went to the MS 67. I checked the MS 65. There both excellext. At 3600. That's very high for a 65 and there's still time left. That will go the way the bidding is going for over four thousand. I don't know how bad you want it but someone wants it real bad to up the bidding that high. And don't forget the highest bid comes in the last minutes of an auction. If you bid on th 67 I'm surprised in the difference. The 67 should be bringing in the higher price for the grade. I didn't check the label. Again I never have and never will tell any collector what to do. It's all up to y o u and I do wish you luck. Don't forget the fees auction houses charge if you win. If you follow me I can simply send messages to you than use the blog. Mike that's up to y o u also.

Oh no Mike I appreciate your advice! I did bid on the MS 67 1909 VDB lincoln cent, but the bid is up around 1200 now and I don't know if it is worth it to continue bidding on it. Do you really think those two MS 65 1909 S VDB are too high for initial bid prices of 3500 and 3600 respectfully? Does the S mint make the 1909 S VDB MS65 lincoln cent a higher value coin. But to be honest with you no one has been bidding at all on those two 1909 S VDB MS 65 lincoln cent coins over the last Month. The RED book 's price is 5500. I know when a coin is graded there can be some degree of variability not only with respect to the coin grader but also of the coin itself. Thanks again for all your advice and help Mike I am relatively new to coin collecting

Hi Mike the PCGS MS 65 for the 1909 S VDB Lincoln cent lists in the red book for 5500. I think you mean the PCGS MS 65 for the 1909 VDB lincoln cent. The 1909 S VDB lincoln cent MS65 goes for much more when its from the "S" mint . Thanks Roy

Well I checked the website. As of now there are 44 bids. And the price is around 800 dollars. There will be more bids and I say it should go for about 2500.00. It all depends on how bad someone wants it. Then you have snipers. They wait till the last possible minute to place a bid. It's up to you and how much your willing to spend. It is a beautiful coin nice red color. I can't and won't tell you what to do. It's all up to you. It's a high grade a will demand a high price. 44 bidders with four days to go. Should be interesting. Lots of luck.mike

Hi Mike there is the one coin for 3500 that I was checking out --what do you think of that coin --this is the main coin I have been looking at on Great Collections website. There is also another coin, same specs, for 3600 on Great Collections. as well. Do you think they are good coins? I do like the one for 3500 the most however. This is the coin I would like you to take a good look at--thanks again, Mike it's much appreciated! Roy

I forgot you should not put any private information on a blog like a phone number.there are over eleven thousand people on this site so you should be careful. Make friends and send messages to them those are private. Just watching out for you.Mike.

Hi Mike, this is Roy, would I be out of line if I asked you to take a look at that coin, 1909 S VDB PCGS MS65, on the Great Collections auction website? Just as a 2nd opinion on the coin itself Thanks Roy

That coin can go for some very high money. You better check the price books and other sites. Especially in a high grade. I've wanted that coin for a long time but it's not in my budget. For that money in would by gold. Lots of luck with your auction. Mike.

Check all the price guides available to you. Then think and re-think about the condition of the coin. Is it barely, mid range or superior (almost MS). On a coin like this it makes a difference.

Check out past prices realized from the auction sites or NGC. If you like it and can afford it, go for it. Make sure to show us a photo!!

The coin I was referring to is on an auction site(GreatCollections) and I was just wondering what another pair of eyes(from an experienced coin collector) thought of the coin--I have only been a coin collector for 3 or 4 years but I love the hobby very much!
