Why add this 1909-S Indian Head Cent to your collection?
The U.S. Mint introduced the Indian Head Cent in 1859 and it ran until 1909 when it was replaced by the Lincoln Cent which was first issued as a tribute for the 100th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The Indian Head Cent features a portrayal of Liberty wearing a Native American headdress designed by the fourth United States Mint Chief Engraver James B. Longacre.
