Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1872 Indian Cent has one of the lowest mintages in the series. It is very similar to the 1871, even though the 1871 has a lower mintage the 1872 seems to carry a higher premium in most grades.

A semi key date to the indian Cent series with approximately 5,000 coins in existence, in all grades combined. Making a very tough issue.
