The Indian cent is one of the most famous of all United States coins. It is a lengthy (51 years) and challenging series. There have been thousands of collectors who have put together sets of Indian cents, but most collections are comprised of low grade circulated coins. A collection of Indian cents is a major accomplishment, particularly if they are in gem condition and are full red or cameo examples. The key date of the circulation strikes has always been considered to be the low mintage 1877. Some other early dates, including the 1867, 1868, 1869, 1870, 1871, 1872 and 1873 are difficult to locate in top condition. In the proofs, it's not only the ultra-rare 1864-L that's a major challenge. Today, there are collectors vying for every date in the proof series with an ardor that is unprecedented. The proofs are beautiful and historic coins with small mintages, relatively low survival rates and an inclination to become spotty and/or cloud up. Another great (and fun) challenge!
