1903 Indian Head Cent

Coins | Longstrider

   I would like to show all this example of a 1903 Indian Head Cent. I won this one at a little known, at the time, auction. It is now well known. No more great deals. My photos don't do the colors justice on this cent. It has a beautiful warm, bright shade of red/brown! It's not a rare year as about 85,092,703 regular circulation strike coins were made. I wasn't looking to collect Indian Head cents when I saw this one but I go for what I like and I really like this one. Now I keep my eye out for nice Indian pennies when I see them. Collect what you like and you won't get tired of your sets!! Thanks for looking!

Very very beautiful Indian cent, I have a few myself ungraded that are around that nice but not as close. This is truly stunning thanks for sharing!

Lovely coin. A choice Indian cent is something to be proud of, & it's obvious you are pleased with this coin! I hope you find more Indian cents that are just as nice!


Level 5

The mintage is high, but the population for high grade red coins is low. A truly nice coin!


Level 4

really nice looking coin - in that grade, it is almost totally clean , no problems - a fortunate find indeed - some of those small auctions have some real treasures !


Level 5

That is a beauty, a common date, maybe, but that's a rare coin!

I read your last sentence again. It's a very true statement collect what you want and you won't get tired of you sets. Well said!
