How much is a 1905 Indian head penny worth?

Postby arte » Mon Oct 10, 2011 8:34 pm

I don't plan on selling this or anything cause I collect coins I was just wondering if it had any value cause I know a wheat penny is supposed to be worth 2cents unless it decreased. So yea just wondering.

It's going to depend on the amount of wear on the coin. However, 1905 Indian Heads are quite common, and don't have a lot of value until you start looking at coins that have no wear at all.

If it's worn to the point that the portrait is pretty much an outline with a few major details, it's about a $1 coin.

If it's got less wear, to the point that some of the minor details are visible (like details in the feathers), then you're looking at about $2.

If there's just a little wear on the high points of the design, about $4-$5.

For an honest/correct figure, it'd be best to ask a coin dealer. I had a few coins, not long ago, I was given over $500.
