Indian Head Cents (1859 - 1909)

James Barton Longacre designed the Indian Head Cent in 1859. The coin had the representation of Liberty wearing an Indian headdress on the obverse, and a laurel wreath on the reverse along with the inscription ONE CENT. This cent underwent some changes along the years. Its reverse showed an oak wreath with a small shield later in 1859. Then, the “Copper-Nickel Indian With Shield” came along having two obverse hubs - the earlier sharp pointed bust and the later rounded tip to bust. The later was issued until 1864. The Bronze Era for Indian cents followed. The earlier Bronze Indian Cents had rounded tip to bust and no engraver’s initial. Later cents showed a narrower and sharper bust and Longacre’s initial L on the ribbon behind the neck – the famous 1864-L penny. The L continued to appear on cents until 1909. Composition: copper-nickel.
