These Indians circulated heavily during the Civil War and at the time were often called "nickels" or "nics" because the nickel gave them a much different look than the copper pennies that came before. When the Indian Cent went into production in 1859, they were struck in a copper nickel composition that continued for six years. It wasn't until later in 1864, a bronze composition was adopted. Cents were struck in that same basic mixture for the next 100+ years.
