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.
