Jaime Hernandez:

The 1874 Indian Cent is somewhat of a scarcer issue if compared to most of the other dates in the series. But, yet not a key date. In circulated grades it is easily available and carries a small premium over the type coins in the series. In Uncirculated grades it becomes scarcer with about 2,000 in existence, in all Uncirculated grades combined.
