Old Native Indian Coins Pt. 2

Hi There Again!

           This is part two of our two part blog on rare Native Indian coins that are available for digging. you can first read part one here


                                1859-1909 Indian-Head Penny

                         Today I will be covering the rare The Indian Head one-cent coin, also known as an Native Indian. This coin 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. Finding these are quite rare, but the best locations are listed below:
. Open fields
. Farmland
. Old Churches
. Mountains (trails)
. Deserts such as Las Vegas, NV
                     The Pricing is too broad to actually specify in one paragraph, but assuming that you have a water mark in bad/fair condition in 1895 (the median year), the price goes for about $1.00 and if it is in very good, it is estimated for $30.00 +. although this coin has not much value, there were quite a few made, so if you happen to run across 500 mint condition ones while metal detecting, that would be worth around $15,000.00! that's a lot of money for a digger.
This is all we will covering of this coin in our 2 part blog. remember to +1, tweet, like, share, and/or pin this. Thanks for your support. Comment below your opinion on this and what coin you would like to have covered for future reference. :) As always, Keep Diggin'!
