Set Description:

This set will never be a top ten contender, nor was that my goal in putting it together.
The "Flying Eagle (see "John's Flying Sense") / Indian Cent" series marks a number of firsts: the first "small cent", the first coin to be called a "nickel, nick or whitey" (both 1857) and the first non-silver subsidiary coins to be struck at a branch mint (1908-S).

Here I just wanted to put together a nice mint state collection of early small cents to match my Lincoln sets. The Lincoln sets (4 complete sets in all and several partial from childhood) reside in Intercept Shield (MS) Dansco (AU) and Whitman (VF-XF). The cost of certifying the Lincolns seems, to me, to be too much for the intrinsic value of the coins. So, with the exception of the key dates they reside in albums. And as it happens, I enjoy them more in the album format anyway. Someday, maybe, I will certify the top set. But to what end?

With these Indians I have sought to include many of the W 57th Street Hoard. I love sunken treasure and hoards, any unique providence adds some spice to the set. I also think that the more of us that provide photos the more enjoyable the registry for all. I hope that you enjoy viewing the set as much as I have putting the the set together.
