Jaime Hernandez:

The 1893 Indian Cent has an average mintage more or less. As there are several issues from the series which have significantly lower or higher mintages. This issue appears to be scarce in MS65 condition with no more than a few hundred known in this condition. In MS66 it is even scarcer with about 100 or so examples known. Anything grading higher is considered a condition census coin and less than a few dozen or so known grading higher than MS66.
