With the hole in it, it is considered damaged, and will have very little value -- probably less than a dollar. Even the rare 1864 L variety will probably be worth $10 or less.

Indian Head cents from 1859 to 1864 weigh 4.67 grams and are thicker than all other Indian Head coins dated after 1864. Near the end of 1864 the weight change to 3.11 grams.The thicker coins are made of Copper Nickel and the thinner coins are made from Bronze

From 1859 through part of 1864, the Indian Head cent was composed of 88% copper and 12% nickel. From the remainder of 1864 to 1909 it was composed of 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc.

The 1863 Indian Head cent is still the copper-nickel composition (.880 copper & .120 nickel) 1864 is the year they were first struck in bronze.

All Indian Head cents minted 1865-1909 (as well as part of 1864) are made of 95% copper and 5% tin/zinc.

The "upper serif" refers to the "4" in 1864. On the right hand side of the horizontal line of the 4, there is a small upwards pointing serif, like a small tail, or the final flourish of a pen as you complete the figure. The other type of 1864 Penny has no "upper serif", but a "T" shaped end on the right hand side of the horizontal line of the 4.

With a date of 1869 the coin is Bronze, the Mint changed the composition in 1864.

It's a 2 cent piece not a 2 penny coin:The 1864 2 cent piece has values of $35.00- $80.00 in average circulated condition

A Penny Farthing was a 19th Century bicycle invented in 1871 by British engineer, James Starley. A Penny and a Farthing are both coins from the now redundant British predecimal currency system. The Penny Farthing bicycle was so named for the contrast of the size of the front and back wheels which were likened to a Penny and a Farthing.

the element that is found in the U.S penny is copperCorrectionElements in US 1¢ coins: Large cents, 1793 to 1857: copperSmall cents, 1856 to mid-1864: copper, with about 12% nickelSmall cents, mid-1864 to 1942 and 1944 to mid-1982: copper, with 5% tin and/or zincSmall cents, 1943: steel (primarily iron) coated with a small amount of zincSmall cents, mid-1982 to the present: zinc, coated with a small amount of copper

This coin needs to be seen for a value because in 1864 the government changed the composition and redesigned the obverse of the coin creating 3 different varieties of the same coin dated 1864. The value of each type is very different. Take it to a dealer or collector for a better idea of value.

British or U.S. Please post new question.

A penny and a two cent coin. (The two-cent coin was produced in the United States from 1864-1873)

There are no U.S. pennies from 1882 with a mintmark -- they were all minted at the main mint in Philadelphia. If you are referring to the "L" on the ribbon at the back of the Indian's head, this is the designer's (James Longacre) initial and appears on all Indian head cents after 1864. If it's something else, then it was manually added after the coin left the mint and will drastically reduce the coin's collector value. In circulated conditiion, an 1882 Indian head cent is worth $2-$3

1982 was the last year for 95%-copper pennies. And the first year for the zinc pennies. They made both types that year, and the only way to tell them apart is by weight -- the zinc pennies are lighter.Answer100% copper pennies were last minted by the US in 1857. These were large cents, about the size of the "golden" dollar coins. The Flying Eagle and Indian Cents from 1856 to 1864 were 88% copper and 12% nickel. Beginning in 1864 Indian Cents, and later Lincoln Cents, were minted in 95% copper and 5% tin, technically this is bronze. AnswerAnother way to tell the copper penny from the copper coated zinc penny is when a penny is dropped on a hard surface the copper penny will have a ringing sound, the zinc penny will not ring.

There is no such coin. There were both pennies and 2-cent coins minted in 1864 but they're different coins. A "two cent penny" is like saying "a five cent dime". There's more information at the Related Question linked below.

That's part of the State Quarters series. Nevada became a state in 1864, but the Nevada quarter was minted in 2006. It's worth 25 cents.

The U.S. has changed the composition of the cent several times.From 1793-1857 the penny was made of 100% copper.1857-1864 the penny was made of 88% copper and 12% nickel.1864-1942 The penny was bronze being made of 95% copper, and 5% tin and zinc.In 1943 the penny was called the 1943 steel cent because it was made of zinc-coated steel.From 1944-46 the cent was brass and made of 95% copper and 5% zinc.From 1946-1962 the penny was bronze and made of 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc.From 1962-1982 the penny was again brass and made of 95% copper and 5% zinc.The most recent change was in mid-1982. The penny is 2.5% copper, being plated in pure copper. The core is made of zinc, 97.5%. The price of copper increased and the penny was cost more to make than it was worth.The penny still costs more to make than it's worth. As of 2010 it costs 1.79 cents to make a single penny.

From mid-1864 to the present, all US cents have an average thickness of 1.55 mm. However individual coins may be somewhat thicker or thinner due to normal variations in the minting process.

Please ask one question a time. Use the format "What is the value of an 1860 British Penny" and you should get an answer.

1864 U.S. Indian Head Cent:3 different variety's of this date exist. For an accurate assessment take it to a coin dealer.

No. The Indian Head Penny, first issued in 1859, and the current penny are the same diameter, 19 mm. However, the early issues of the Indian Head Penny were actually almost twice as heavy as the current zinc pennies with a weight of 4.67 grams as compared to the 2.5 grams of the zinc cent. These heavy cents were comprised of 88% copper and 12% nickel and were minted until 1864 when the composition was changed to 95% copper and 5% tin and zinc. This new composition weighed 3.11 grams which became the standard weight for the cent until 1982 when the copper plated zinc cent was introduced. The only exception to this weight was in 1943 when the cents were minted from zinc plated steel and had a weight of 2.70 grams. So, although the penny is still the same size as it was in 1859 it is much lighter.

Khan Bahadur Sheikh Ibrahim Sheikh Imam was the first Indian Police Officer. He was appointed to the Mumbai Police in the year 1864.

Indian head cents were struck in two different alloys: > From 1859 to mid-1864 they were made of an alloy of 88% copper and 12% nickel, with a weight of 4.67 gm. > From mid-1864 to the end of the series in 1909 they were made of the familiar bronze alloy of 95% copper, 5% tin and/or zinc that was used until mid-1982 (excepting 1943, of course) when the current copper-plated zinc composition was adopted.
