Indian Cents
1900 1C MS

Description & Analysis

The cent of 1900 was the first United States coin issue to pass the 60 million mark in mintage. Not surprisingly, it is extremely common in worn condition, and Mint State examples of average to choice quality are fairly plentiful. In his Guide Book to this series, Rick Snow observed that this date is the scarcest one in fully red gem for the period 1900-09.

Only minor varieties are known, and the more popular ones are recognized under NGC's VarietyPlus Service.
