    If you had to choose one or the other to collect, which would you choose, would you choose the Indian Head cent or the 2 cent piece?

    The older I get the bigger the coins have to be for me to see them. I think there are far less 2 cent pieces around but for the scarcity, they probably cost less in higher grades than IHC's in comparable grade and survival numbers. I don't care for small cents as much as larger copper for some reason.

    Tough call, I like them both. My only concern with two cents it seems a lot of them have been messed with. I think the supply of original IHC's is greater.

    Personally I prefer the Indian Head cent, as I believe it to have a better design motif.

    I voted the Indian Cent, it served the nations commerce for 50 years, and back in the day the cent could buy many things,
