The links to the left of this post is to a page with additional details for such Lincoln cents, and its estimated value.

Unfortunat ely, I don't think that this coin [unless I did not see it correctly?], is a VDB Lincoln cent, as the two 'rare' factors, the VDB inscription and S mint mark isn't seen, at least from the photos. I would say that if I am correct, it would just be a typical cent minted in Philadelphia.

I believe they made just plain V.D.B Penny's.

The VDB design was used in 1909 is located on the side with the One Cent side, and in 1918, the US Mint had placed a smaller inscription near Lincoln's shoulder.

From what I can see from the photos, the 1909 1 Cent coin in your picture could still be called a VDB cent, although without the inscription or mint mark, it would most likely be regarded just a typical 1909 cent. The link I supplied has this to say of such a coin in terms of its estimate:

1909 $4 US dollars

Ok. Thank you. I do see the V.D.B on it.

If there actually is a VDB mark on the coin that I can't see from the photos provided, the value would roughly be the following:

1909 VDB $12
