The 1881 Indian Cent is considered a common date in the series. Over 39 million examples were struck and many were saved. Obtaining an example in most grades is not that difficult. Only in MS65 condition or higher do they become somewhat scarce, yet there are still hundreds of examples in this condition. In MS66 condition they are scarce and possibly about 75 - 100 examples exist. In MS67 they are very scarce with about a dozen or less known.
