  • Description:

    San Francisco could catch no break from their recent earthquake. By 1907, the city was in dire need of funds to rebuild when the bubonic plague hit the city. City Health Department officials actually paid residents five cents for every rat, dead or alive, brought in. Elsewhere, the building of the Panama Canal began in earnest. President Roosevelt put the US Army in Panama to oversee the construction. Back home, women, urged by rights gained by Scandanavian women, continued to fight for women’s suffrage. The state of Oklahoma was admitted to the Union of states.

    The 1907 Indian Head cent holds the highest record of any coin made by the US Mint by this time. Over 108 million cents were issued that year. This record would be broken in 1909, however, this year the Mint was striking both Indian Head cents and Lincoln cents. This year’s many pennies circulated widely and for many decades. Most examples today are well worn, but there are enough survivors to satisfy collector demand in all grades.

    This is one of the lowest mintage of proof Indian Head cents since the 1880’s. Under 1,500 Proof cents were minted. At the time, the US Mint did not created mint state coins for collectors. The department only wanted to make as many proof cents as it could sell. Collectors will likely see stronger die polishing lines this year than that of others. This year has more varieties in the Indian Head cents for circulation than any other year. Up to this point 47 varieties. Many of these are repunched dates.
