    Indian Head Key Date? (Updated Picture)

    Today I went to a home built in 1830 and the finds were few and far between. I think the property was previously detected. The only coin worth mentioning was the Indian head I found about an hour in. It was at about 6-8 inches. Maybe the last person there just looked over it or they didn't have a Sovereign GT and couldn't see that deep The condition looked bleak. I could tell the back of the coin was an IH but could not see any detail on the front of the coin. Well after a hot peroxide bath, the coin came out much better than I could have hoped. In fact, it's the best condition IH I've found to date. It's an 1872! I think this might be considered a "key date". Maybe someone on this board could verify whether it is "key" or not.

    Also could anybody give me an idea of the grade of the coin?

    Thanks for looking!

    Re: Indian Head Key Date?

    That is a pretty good year. Definitely a semi-key date. My guess is it would grade at least F-12 which would make it a 300-350 dollar coin in the 2008 Red Book. Nice find.

    Re: Indian Head Key Date?

    Do you think it might be worth sending it in and having it graded?

    Wow! That did clean up great! It is amazing that you were able to find it there, somebody had definetly gone through there with a fine tooth comb before. Great job!

    Yeah... Just off of 282 outside of Downingtown. Seems like most places around us have been searched up and down though. Everywhere I go seems to have piles of scrap metal laying all over the place as if its already been searched.

    Re: Indian Head Key Date?

    look at the prices on ebay for that year, only 7 of them on auction right now, and yours looks better than any on there. looks like it could fetch quite a bit of cash

    That IH is stunning. I would definitely say VF-EF as for condition. That must have been one h*ll of a peroxide bath! I'm all for cleaning coins like that for this reason. Nice find! There have been a bunch of nice indians found this week!
