    Assuming 1885. There are no 1805 Indian head cents.

    I retract my above statement, looks to be 1895.

    Looks like 1895 to me.

    It has to be 1895. The last feather is between “CA” not “IC” as it would on an 1885 cent.

    The hub change came in 1886. Check out the Red Book to see what I mean.

    I tried to enhance the picture a bit, it's 1895. You see, the upper part of the 3rd digit, the circle, is smaller that the 2nd. So it has to be a 9 and not an 8.

    If you will put a drop of alcohol on it you may be able to read the date.

    Welcome to CT Michelle. It is helpful to many if you post your photos FULL IMAGE (two choices appear after you upload your photo, click on Full Image).
    I believe you have your answer that the cent is 1895 but I can certainly see why you questioned the date. That's what is so nice about this forum. Good luck in the future.

    It was the moderator removing the photo he posted as it had nothing to do with your coin. That is why it is red.
