Why add this superbly graded 1863 Indian Head Cent to your collection?
The Indian Head Cent was an annual product of the U.S. Mint for fifty-one years, from 1859 through 1909. Following a reverse design change implemented for the second year of issue, imagery remained constant for the duration of the series. The series' design is credited to James Barton Longacre, a Pennsylvania native who was appointed the fourth Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint in 1844.
Gorgeous Indian Head Cent Imagery
Obverse: A left facing rendition of Lady Liberty is located on the obverse, wearing a traditional Native American Chief's feathered headdress above her gently curling locks. "LIBERTY" inscribed upon her headband, with "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "1863" encircling the portrait.
Reverse: The reverse features a ribbon-tied wreath of oak leaves, with a patriotically striped shield at the topmost point. The coin's "ONE CENT" denomination is boldly inscribed at the center of the wreath. The significance of the oak leaf is derived from ancient Roman history, when Roman commanders wore an oak wreath crown as a symbol of strength, endurance, honor and military prowess.
