Aloha! Found this while looking over some of my "culls" this weekend. Curious if RedBook is accurate on value of an Indian Head penny with doubling is really worth over $800 and if the scratch on the back negates any value of the coin. The details on the coin are great. I'm not really sure why I threw it in my scrap coin bag, but I'm glad I found it before getting rid of them. I am wondering what I should do with it from this point on as well. I would like to sell it, but not sure how to value it or if eBay is the best place to list it. Any info regarding price, devaluation due to damage, should I get it slabbed and graded, is eBay the best place to sel it, etc would be very helpful. MAHALO

Great photos, but it's clearly MD.

It's been cleaned and the reverse, if those are scratches, would reduce the probable value to a buck, I'd guess.

Agree, MD. And the scratches are a killer.

To CCF! Yep, it's Machine Doubling, not a Doubled Die. The devices are reduced in size, and it's shelflike in appearance.

Agree with the MD and damage. Nice coin either way.
