  • Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cent Die Varieties

    Howdy all,

    My name is Russ Doughty and I'm an avid collector of the FEC and IHC series. I've long been aware of CONECA, but it wasn't until recently that I learned CONECA is into 19th century die varieties. So I joined tonight on the forum and paid my membership dues. This marks the seventh club of which I'm a member. The others include the ANA, Oklahoma NA, Fly-In Club, Indian Territory Coin Club, Chopmark Collectors, and Central States.

    The most joy I get from my favorite hobby is when I get to collaborate with others to share information. I love laughing and talking coins.

    EDITED OUT

    Please let me know if you have questions or if I could ever be of help to you, the club, or the hobby.

    Cheers,

    Russ

    Nice to meet you Russ. This is great to know. I added you as a contact. I'm mainly a Lincoln variety collector, but when searching eBay, I search all small cents. I only own 1 IHC variety (1890 MPD-001, S6, FS-402), but am always looking to expand my collection. From time to time I run across an IHC or FEC variety listed as a normal coin, but have no idea of value. If I have any questions in the future, I'd love to be able to pick your brain on the subject. Again, welcome to the forum.

      Hey Jay thanks! I have a new camera setup, so hopefully I can get some nice shots now. I have many rolls and pounds of unsearched wheats, so who knows what is in there. Now I have the power to photograph them. I'll try to attribute them and put them in 2x2s for Lincoln collectors to enjoy.

      Let me know if I can be of any help. A link to my website has been posted in the 'Links' section of the forum.

        Wow boomtree, it truely is a pleasure! I didn't realize you were Russ. I have your site bookmarked! It's the only one I use if I think I've spotted an unattributed FEC or IHC on eBay. Your site, along with the CPG, helped me cherrypick the 1890 MPD-001 (S6). The site is spectacular!

        I think (hope) I have an 1897 (S1)(1 in neck) MPD on the way from eBay right now. The image is far away, so I can't tell for sure if the "1" is correctly oriented or not. I took a chance at $3.25 free ship. Here's the link to the listing if you want to take a look. I hope it's here tomorrow so I'll know for sure.

          Yeah, that is it. Nice score!

          They are common and very much in demand. One time I bought a lot of 10 1897 Indian Cents and 2 of them were the 1 in neck. The higher grades are tough to find.
