Product Details:

Indian Head Cents Type 3 Bronze (1864-1909)
During the Civil War, attrition caused the hoarding of coins struck in gold, silver and copper nickel. This prompted the U.S. Mint to change the composition of the one cent coinage. The remaining years (1864 -1909) the Indian Cent was struck on bronze planchets. This variety was made from planchets of .950 copper and .050 tin and zinc. The diameter of 19mm is the same as previous small cents. The design was from John Longacre’s Indian motif using the head of Liberty dressed in an Indian Feather headdress. This coin is super Red for anything this old. They just do not become available in Red.

Coin Features:
  • Obverse: Head of Liberty Facing Left wearing a Feather Crown.
  • Reverse: Oak Leaf Laureate with arrows at the base and a Heraldic Shield at the top.
