Indian Head Cents were made from 1859 to 1909 with all coins minted in Philadelphia until the final two years when coins were also made in San Francisco.
James Longacre designed the Indian Head Cent which is actually a representation of Liberty wearing an Indian headdress. Indian Head Cents are one of the most popular of all U.S. coins!
A solid strike on the obverse with a touch of reverse softness. The surfaces are very clean and the rich copper-nickel luster is very flashy. In an older holder and much nicer than your typical MS-63!
Well struck with gorgeous mark-free surfaces. Beautiful fresh blazing luster gives this fantastic Premium Gem superb eye appeal.
Amazingly fresh, blazing mint luster dances on this popular Civil War era cent. The strike is razor sharp and the pristine surfaces show virtually no abrasions. Truly a premium quality Gem that will enhance the very finest of Indian Head Cent collections!
Super sharp strike with highly reflective surfaces as you'd expect on a high quality proof. Nice original reddish copper-nickel color with light streaking on the reverse.
CAC approved. Flashy mint luster with light iridescence and a sharp strike.
CAC. Great color and beautiful surfaces on this fabulous copper-nickel cent. Only 2 coins graded higher at PCGS at 66+.
CAC. A beautiful coin with outstanding smooth surfaces and a great strike. The reverse is mostly red while the obverse is a pleasing blend of mint red and glossy brown.
A very pleasing coin with highly reflective proof surfaces that are mint red with a subtle wood grain effect. Most of the proofs for 1864 were minted early in the year when copper-nickel cents were in production. Only 150 bronze coins are estimated to have been produced!
CAC approved. Well struck with rich, original blazing luster. Very nice!
A well detailed example of this scarce cent.
CAC. Fancy 5. Razor sharp strike and rich mint luster with considerable mint red.
Very strong detail on this scarce date 'Indian'.
Light brown and faded red surfaces with a sharp strike and very few marks. The MS-63 grade seems too conservative on this very attractive early 'Indian'!
