Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The 1884 Indian Cent is a considered a common  issue in the Indian Cent series as it has a high mintage. Circulated examples are very inexpensive that most collectors can afford one. In Uncirculated condition it is scarce in MS64 and MS65 condition, especially in Red condition. In MS66 it is very scarce with a few dozen examples known more or less. In MS67 condition it is rare with less than 10 or so known.
