Flying Eagle and Indian Head cents, minted from 1856 to 1909, were once
the most popular, most widely circulated, most plentiful coins in
everyday American life. Just about every kid had a pocketful of "Indian
pennies," and older folks used them as well.
Several of them could buy a newspaper, or candy, or a streetcar ride.
Drop a cent into the slot, turn the crank, and you would be dazzled by
an automobile racing around a track, or a boxing match, or a vaudeville
show. Indian Head cents were anywhere and everywhere.
Now, in the fully updated 2nd edition of A guide book of Flying Eagle
and Indian Head Cents, Rick Snow examines these beautiful coins by
date, mintage, production, survivability, collecting challenges, and
variety. His research is bolstred by the usual high-quality Bowers
