The 1909-S Indian Head Penny, authenticated with AU Details by NGC, represents one of the most sought-after rarities in the world of numismatics. Struck in the San Francisco mint, as denoted by the ‘S’ mint mark, this coin is renowned for its scarce mintage – a mere 309,000 pieces, the lowest in the series.
The AU (Almost Uncirculated) Details grading implies that this specimen has retained a significant degree of its original detail and luster, showing only slight wear on the highest points of the design. Its bold relief and detailed rendering of Lady Liberty wearing a Native American headdress is a testament to the exceptional craftsmanship of its era.
A coin of such rarity, in this condition, holds substantial value and offers a unique opportunity for serious collectors to own a piece of American numismatic history.
