The 1896 Indian Cent has one of the higher mintages in the series. Collectors should not have a difficult time finding examples up to about MS65 condition, as they are plentiful. In MS66 condition they are much scarcer with possibly no more than 100 examples available, more or less. In MS67, they are very rare and about a handful or less have been confirmed.
