    I'm more concerned about the GSW to the mouth.

    Could be an older cleaning but to get an 1862 possibly F12 Indian for a buck? Great deal...........I would not worry if it was

    Possibly an old cleaning and I noticed the hit to the mouth of Liberty too, but any Copper Nickel IHC for $1 with readable dates and legends is a score in my book! Congrats!

    Hi everyone. I am new to this but I see someone referred to this as a CN. Also possibly an F12. Can I ask what CN and F12 mean.
    Thanks,

    Copper Nickel... CN... refers to the metallic composition of the coin from 1859 to 1864. From 1864 to 1909 IHCs were minted in Bronze.

    F12 is the grade (Fine 12). The scale goes from 01 (Poor) to 70 or Mint State).

    All of this information can be had in a copy of The Redbook...

    Nice pickup for a dollar! CN cents can be lighter in color; I'd say it is ok and just has some darker toning around the edges.
