Description & Analysis

Production of cents declined a bit in 1904. In the absence of a published reason, it must be assumed that existing stocks of cents were sufficient to reduce new orders.

This date is readily available across most grades, and only a few minor varieties are known. The example illustrated, with its warm earth tones, is proof that an Indian Head Cent doesn't have to be blazing red to be beautiful.
