Bills backed by silver rose in value as gold become more abundant and the mint reduced the number of silver in coins to balance prices. To help further mitigate this imbalance, a new penny, the Flying Eagle Cent was issued, but manufacturing problems arose from its design. In 1959, a design by James Barton Longacre nicknamed the Indian Head Cent was issued. Production problems continued due to the high relief on the reverse, but the penny was minted until 1909. The obverse of the Indian Head Cent features a right-facing profile of an American Indigenous person wearing a feather bonnet. "United States of America" and the year in which the coin was minted are also included. The reverse reads "One Cent," set within a laurel or oak wreath. In 1860, the design was changed slightly, adding a shield at the top and three arrows under the ribbon that binds the edges of the wreath. The edges of both sides are ridged. Two misconceptions of this coin is that weathered coins are of less value to collectors and that a myth endures that Longacre modeled the face on the coin after his daughter, there is no evidence to support this. Longacre' sketch of "Venus Accroupie," a museum piece in Philadelphia, has surfaced and is dated ten years before the coin was minted. It is likely this sketch served as the basis for the design. The value of the Indian Head Cent has changed over the year, but every pressing of the coin, in mint condition, is worth at least a dollar. Rare editions are worth in excess of $100. The 1877 pressing is the most valuable and one of these coins in mint condition is worth approximately $440.

Review This Product
Lovely Rose-Tone WatchThis watch is even prettier in person than the picture shows. The combination of the chocolate brown strap and rose tone watch face is very attractive. The shiny Indian head penny face is unusual and very nice. The watch face is a great size, not too large or too small. The watch looks much more expensive than it was. Since I wear rose gold jewelry often, I will enjoy wearing this watch very often also. Thanks, Jewelry Television, for another quality item! July 31, 2011

**'Must Have' addition to your watch wardrobe !!**Every woman needs to add this watch to her collection! The design and attention to detail is outstanding. The chocolate leather strap and background to the Roman Numerals are a darker shade of the soft rose tone of the case. The combination frames and showcases the brighter coppery rose of the Indian Head Penny on the dial. The coordinated colors of the entire watch would enhance every skin tone. An unusual, unique, classy, piece of wearable history and art that captures the attention of those who see it, without being flashy. I've worn it for two days and have had people I know, and people I don't (folks in line at the grocers, bank tellers, etc)commenting on it all day long. I've never had so many people notice, and comment, on any other piece of jewelry! Wearable with variety of fabrics and all seasons. BUY ONE TODAY BEFORE THEY ARE ALL GONE!!! June 16, 2011
