Jaime Hernandez:

The 1894 Indian Cent has the lowest mintage from all Indian Cents from the 1990's. It also has a lower mintage than many other dates in the series, however, it is not scarce enough to be a key date. It is scarce in about MS64 condition. Anything grading below MS64 is not as scarce and can be purchased fairly inexpensively. In MS65 condition it is very much harder to obtain and expect to pay a significant premium. MS66 examples are very expensive, enough examples are out there for serious collectors to buy but expect to pay a very high premium.
