    No silver but I cant complain about this indian head penny!

    Stopped at a small town park I have never hunted before over lunch today. First deep coin signal was hitting in the wheat penny range. I dug it out and was surprised to see a nice green indian staring back at me. I couldn't see the date so I hit it with my water spray bottle and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the date. 1877!!. This is my second 1877 indian head now. I dug one last year and unfortunately I scratched it good with my digger. Not this time! This one survived unscathed and it is in pretty good condition too. Only had about 30 minutes to hunt but I found this and a 1918 wheat penny so I am very pleased with the results.Click image for larger version.

    First of all, congratulations on finding that IHP. Second, you need to get that coin down to your local coin dealer and ask for an appraisal. That might be a coin that you send out to PCGS!

    That’s the cent we’re all looking for. That’s an awesome find in great condition and perhaps needs a trip across the top as a banner. Vote submitted.

    That is THE key date for the Indian cents! Very, very nice. From past experience, if you send it for grading they will slab it for you of course, but not grade it. It will say something like Genuine - Environmental damage. I've seen that a lot.
