While reading the latest issue of Coins magazine, the October 2015, I found myself thinking about the 1877 Indian Head Cent. Knowing they are rare, but not knowing the exact mintage, I looked them up in my Red Book. There I found a mintage of 852,500...BUT the mintage also noted that there are thought to be only 900 today. I am just wondering if anyone knows where the other 851,600 cents went. Thanks!6 years ago
1877 Indian Head Cents
Cool! Thanks!6 years ago
There have to be considerably more than 900. The shear number available any given day on the auction houses, ebay, etc. not to mention the graded ones in collectors hands.6 years ago
900 refers the the amount of proof coins made that year, for that denomination.6 years ago
Ah, thanks a lot.
