Jaime Hernandez: The 1877 Indian Cent is the key coin to the entire Indian cent series. It is also the second lowest mintage coin in the entire circulation strike Indian Cent series. Only the 1909-S Indian cent has a lower mintage.

In the late 1800’s, Indian Cents weren’t saved as much as they were in the early 1900’s. Also, the 1909-S Indian cent was a very popular coin during the time that it was issued. Primarily, because it was the last coin being struck for the Indian cent series. This is just one of the few reasons why the 1877 Indian cent has an even lower survival rate that the 1909-S.
