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 mint state collection of Indian cents is a major accomplishment, particularly if they are in gem condition and are full red examples. The key date of this series 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.
