Customer Reviews
This Indian Head cent is both a first-year issue AND a one-year-only type coin! Bears original Laurel Wreath reverse design that was replaced after just one year. Obverse of coin shows Liberty with pointed bust in a Native American headdress. Struck in copper-nickel, early Indian Head cents were often called nickels or nicks until 1866 and were later known as white cents. A must for every Indian Head cent collector!
