Indian Head cent

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Indian Head one-cent coin, also known as an Indian Penny, was produced by the United States Mint from 1859 to 1909 at the Philadelphia Mint and in 1908 and 1909 at the San Francisco Mint. It was designed by James Barton Longacre, the engraver at the Philadelphia Mint 1844–1869, as well as typography design by Steven Chayt.

The obverse of the coin shows "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the head of Liberty wearing a feather head dress of a Native American and the year of production. The word "LIBERTY" appears on the band of the head dress. From 1859 to 1864 the design did not feature any mark of the designer. After the change to bronze (see below) occurred in 1864, Chief Engraver Longacre modified the portrait by sharpening the details. He added his initial "L" on the ribbon behind Liberty's neck as well. thus creating two varieties for the year. This design would continue until the end of the series, with a minor modification by William Barber in 1870. A more noticeable change was made by Charles E. Barber in 1886 when the portrait was slightly modified and lettering on the right side of the coin shifted, again making two varieties for one date.[1]

Two reverse designs were used for the series. In 1859 the reverse featured "ONE CENT" within a wreath of laurel (or properly olive). From 1860 until the end of the series the reverse featured "ONE CENT" within a wreath of oak and olive tied at the base with a ribbon with a Federal shield above. This design continued until the end of the series in 1909.

The coins struck between 1859 and 1864 contained 88% copper and 12% nickel. During this time, prior to the issuance of the Five-Cent nickel coin, the cent was commonly referred to as a "Nickel" or "Nick," for short. Due to the hoarding of all coinage during the Civil War, the nickel cents disappeared from daily use and were replaced in many Northern cities by private tokens. The success of these copper tokens prompted the change of the cent to a similar metal. In 1864, the alloy changed to bronze (95% copper and 5% tin and zinc), and the weight of the coins was reduced from 72 grains to 48 grains. This weight continued for copper-alloy U.S. cents until the 1982 introduction of the current copper-plated zinc cent (about 38.6 grains).

The total production of the Indian Head cent was 1,849,648,000 pieces. The 1909-S had the lowest mintage, only 309,000. It is not considered as scarce as the 1877 issue (852,500), since fewer of those were kept, particularly in the higher grades.

In 1858, The Mint tested new designs for the cent. Although the Flying Eagle cent, which began regular production in 1857, is aesthetically pleasing to collectors today, it was proving to be an unsatisfactory design for producing thick coins in hard metal. The head and tail of the eagle were opposite the wreath on the reverse. The coins did not strike-up well, and if the striking pressure was increased, the dies broke too easily. The Indian Head design was much better suited because the design was more central and did not oppose the metal flow with the wreath on the reverse. The Director of the Mint, James Ross Snowden, submitted models[2] for a new design, and Secretary Cobb gave his approval to the Indian Head Cent.

The production of Indian Cents between 1859 and 1860 was large because copper large cents and half cents in circulation until 1857 were being redeemed with the new cents. Some years production, like 1861 was based solely on the number of the pre-1857 copper coins that were redeemed under the Mint Act of March 3, 1857, which allowed for their redemption until 1860 (revised to extend until 1861).

Other than the already noted slight design changes made in 1860, 1864, and 1886, the series continued without major varieties from 1859 to 1909. There are slight date variations in 1865 (fancy 5 and plain 5), 1873 (open and closed 3), and a well known overdate (1888/7). An unusual variety was recently discovered when it was found that some 1875 cents had a tiny dot in the "N" of "ONE". This may have been a secret mark added to one die to catch a mint employee stealing coins.[3
