The 1877 Indian Head Cent was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1877 and is part of the Indian Head Cent series.

Considered the key to the series, value and demand is greater for an 1877 than any other Indian penny.

Worth $600 and up even when heavily worn, it is a popular date with collectors. Many are assembling sets of Indian pennies and finding a nice 1877 with the least amount of wear is a challenge. Should your coin display some of the finer details in and around the headband it is avidly sought by collectors.

Amazingly, a few rare 1877 Indian pennies are still in the same condition today as when first minted. Referred to as "uncirculated" these coins with mint luster remaining, and undisturbed surfaces are the top prize of any collection.

Determining the condition of your coin is essential, subtle details with these high priced coins often dramatically change their value.

Large swings in 1877 Indian head penny value often hinge on small subtle details of the coin's surface. In the collecting market, grading a coin is understandably subjective with many personal views. Often an independent third party is called upon to render its opinion. As an important resource to the hobby, dealers and collectors routinely send high value coins to either PCGS or NGC for authentication and grading.
