    Hello All!

    I got this ungraded 1893 Indian Head Cent as part of a lot and I think it looks to be in such nice condition. However, being new to this hobby, I am terrible at grading.

    Anyone want to have fun taking guesses what grade it is?

    VG-08. Just a filler coin for the binder.

    Fellows are correct with a VG evaluation. When you study an Indian head cent, look for the word “Liberty” on her headband. The ability to see or not see that word is a pretty good indicator of the grade of your coin.

    Do the four diamonds on the sash from her headband count or matter?

    Since LIBERTY is not visible at all, I thought this would be a G-4 (according to the Redbook)?

    There’s part of the letters there. That’s good enough fo VG. The headband is flat on G4 coins.
