Anything special about the 1877 Indian Head cent?

5 posts in this topic

Wasn't sure if this should go in the Tangents forum,but I doubt it will have a long life either way.


A couple of weeks ago in Vegas I picked up some novelty

replicas of US coins.Today I examined them a little closer and noticed something strange.Included are the 185 Flying cent,the 1909S VDB Lincoln,the 1907 St Gualdins $20 Gold piece,the 1913 Buffalo nickel and the 1877 Indian Head.Except for the Indian Head,all the others are key dates.Any idea why they choose the 1877 Indian head?

The coins are about the size of the Giant four ounce novelty items that are popular. I thought they'd make nice coasters for my glass tables,being heavy enough to withstand the breezes off the ocean.

Any thoughts?
