    RARE 1877 INDIAN HEAD CENT

    Back in the 1980's, I was metal detecting in an old Midwest park and dug up this 1877 Indian Head. As shown in the picture, it came out of the ground pretty green but it has pretty good detail and it is, still, a rare 1877. I've never sent it in for grading but wonder what it would grade in that condition.
    Any comments??

    Re: RARE 1877 INDIAN HEAD CENT

    It looks like the letters in the headband are all too worn to be read. The good news is that the coin grades a strong G-4. Undug, it should fetch a little over $700. I would imagine you could still get $400-500 for it even though it is in dug condition. Don't attempt to clean it though. And I don't know that it is worth your trouble to send it in for grading. Key dates in G or VG condition usually don't warrant that type of treatment.

    Yeah. Two replies and 1200 views. Ain't that a crock! This is a KILLER coin, and worth more than most of the coppers or spanish silvers that make the banner. Way to go!

    What a great injun! Most members looked at this and said oh its only one coin big deal! They have no idea what they are looking at! If it was a gold ring that had 24k marked on it ( 24k is the first sign it is a fake junk or plated etc) you would have made the friggin banner!

    Re: RARE 1877 INDIAN HEAD CENT

    Gorgeous coin, I know I would be willing to give $400 for it even "dug" to add it to indian head collection. That does beat most finds out there, including most gold coins. You made my banner...Ryan

    OUTSTANDING FIND SWANNIE1...

    I'm NOT trying to steal ANY of your thunder but,yesterday I unearthed an 1889 indian head from 6" deep that completely blew my mind.It is green in color but it looks like it didn't see more than a month of circulation,EVERY detail is preasant,the field doesn't have a single scratch on it,full reeding, the works!!She's the prettiest IH I've even seen.I can't understand how this coin has no oxidization or verdigres on it.I'ts the seventh one I've ever found and none of the others can even hold a candle to it.My oldest is a 1864,and no not the "L" variety..Thats the closest I ever came to a key date like the 1877,Congrats again.

    Sorry I can't share a picture with you all,I have NO idea how to.
