The Top Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cent Die Varieties
I won a grant from the Central States Numismatic Society in 2017 to publish my book on The Top Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cents. I highly recommend purchasing the book before they are sold out!
After a couple of years worth of research, input and feedback, we’ve constructed a list of Top Die Varieties by Date and by Type for the Flying Eagle and Indian Head Cent series. There are many approaches to collecting, and each coin series can have different collecting methods. Most of the top varieties are part of match sets, which are small collections of die varieties that share a common trait – like the Goatee Match Set. More methods and top varieties are to come!
Die varieties have long been desired by collectors. But it wasn’t until the hobby matured that written literature and photography appeared. Now a multitude of written resources exist for top die varieties. In fact, more websites are popping up like Cuds-on-coins.com which is helping advance the research digitally.
