PRODUCT DETAILS:

1862 or 1863 Copper Nickel Indian Head Cent Coin From The Civil War - Fine Condition

COIN HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The first nickel was a penny!
  • Civil war dated coin from 1862 or 1863. 
  • These highly collectible civil war era cents feature a mixture of 88% copper and 12% nickel, giving them a much different color than the earlier copper pennies that were still in circulation.
  • Designed by James B. Longacre. These cents weigh 4.67 grams and have a diameter of 19 mm. Plain edge.
  • Every coin is in Fine condition.
  • All coins come in protective plastic.


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.

  • A solid GOOD coin (as advertised) but not as nice as the photo shown (which to me looks more like a VG example).
  • I received the 6 Indian cents and I chose the upgrade...A perfect example of a historical coin, doesn't get any better than civil war period coins...The coins had very fine lines and great eye appeal...Couldn't be more pleased!!!
  • now these are great I have a lot of indian heads but these are the icing on top of my indian head collection I am very proud of these good job m.p.
  • As usual received shipment quickly. Coins were as advertised. Quality and service first class
  • Very nice coin and I think I will pick up a few more. Great piece of history.
