Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez: The 1871 Indian Cent is one of the lowest mintage issues of the series. In fact, from 1859 - 1876 it is the lowest mintage coin in the Indian Cent series. What's even worse is that during the early 1870's the Mint was melting a lot of previously issued cents, including many 1871 cents. Making the coin become scarcer.

A semi key date to the series with possibly about 5,000 examples in existence in all grades combined. In Uncirculated grades they become even scarcer with only a couple of hundred examples known to exist.
