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!

CAC. Needle-sharp with deep mirrored fields and amazingly intense blazing copper-nickel luster. Tied for the finest graded at PCGS and CAC approved. Super!
CAC. Incredible blazing mint luster that looks like a freshly minted cent. The strike and surfaces are also outstanding, but it's the color that really makes this beautiful copper-nickel cent!

Well struck with vibrant red-brown luster.
Sharply struck with flashy surfaces and iridescent hues of brown, lavender, and gold.
CAC. Cameo. Most proofs are struck early in the year so most were copper-nickel cents in 1864. Estimates range from 150 to 300 bronze pieces minted. This example has eye appeal far exceeding its' numerical grade with fresh blazing red luster, spot-free surfaces, a bold strike, and wonderful 'cameo' contrast.
A very bold strike with bright blazing mint luster and semi proof-like surfaces.
