    Very sad. That Native American man has severe leukocoria. His corrective lenses are likely of little use with a condition so advanced.

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    @joeykoins,
    Born and raised. on 38th street between Kedzie and California (1/2 mile for I55). Drove by the Chief many times.

    As for the Indian coin, the only Indian head that I am interested in is the 1909S, but nice AU coin.

    Years ago, before the Tabacco business left. Which was the original place that erected the Indian statue, someone shot the Indian with an arrow. It can be seen as you drove by. The arrow sticking in his back. Since then, the arrow was removed with a new paint job as well.
    :o
