Detailed Information on the 1879

Between the year 1878 and 1879 the US Mint increased the production of the Indian Head Cent 3 fold. Going from just 5.6 million minted the year before to more than 16 million in 1879. This increased production as expected created more supply and the value of the coin fell. This makes the coins a little more economical if you will. Still a good addition to your coin collection.
