U.S. Indian Head Cent 1870 Good
|Item Number: 17215|
|Collectors love Indian Head pennies! The quintessentially American coin features a native princess who was intended to be a Liberty personification. At the time, virtually every other U.S. coin denomination displayed Liberty, but the Wild West flavor of this coin was unique.
The very limited mintage of 5,275,000 in 1870 was the lowest production for Indian Head cents to that date. Over twenty times that number were output later in the series! That small mintage, produced almost a century-and-a-half ago, makes this issue significantly tougher to acquire than many other dates. And the harder a coin is to find, the higher its value.
