    Sweet 1873 Indian Head

    Folks,

    I recently found my first IH penny. Found a very nice 1800s home that I have been hunting all week. It has given up a nice lot of relics, coins, spoons, etc.

    I just had to post this IH, one of 3 from the porch area. Seems like the open 3 variety to me:

    Sweet IH right there! Take a real close look at the "LIBERTY" and see if it's doubled.

    Re: Sweet 1873 Indian Head

    glad others are excited as i am

    the best thing is that i now have about 5 places lined up ranging in dates from 1805-1850. some were stagecoach stops, some were inns, some schools, etc.

    i am gonna have to start cataloging all these finds. Gonna make some friends with the local historical societies!
