    So what would cause all these marks? I can see the marks by the nose easily and the coin has a nice red color to it .

    What am I missing? Was the title edited? IMO the coin doesn't look fake. Nice find. Clash on both sides.

    Use the site posted by @SensibleSal66. In the search bar type in "one cent overlays". You'll see what part of the reverse caused the marks by the nose and what part of the obverse caused the marks by the arrows.
    Sal, thanks for posting the site. Now I know where to find overlays. :)

    Clashed dies is a good site but if you want answers on Indian head cents ....you need to go here...a site that gives you the information that is pertinent to the subject matter.
