  • United States Copper Nickel Indian Cent From 1863 - Choose Good To Very Good, Fine, Very Fine, Extremely Fine, and About Uncirculated Condition - The First Nickel Was A Penny!

    These Indians circulated heavily during the Civil War and at the time were often called "nickels" or "nics" because their nickel composition gave them a much different color than the earlier dated large copper pennies that still circulated.

    When the Indian Cent went into production in 1859 they were struck in a copper nickel composition, this continued for six years, until when later in 1864 a bronze composition was adopted. Cents were struck in that same basic mixture for the next 100+ years.

    • Author: David Rider
      Great looking coins. All markings are very sharp. The two I received are both from 1862
    • Author: Renee Minett
      I ordered one and can not believe how great the coin looks! I definitely will order more!

      I can not believe that I have a coin that circulated during the Civil War. I wonder who touched it.

      It is a piece of history that is in beautiful condition.

      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!!!
