I have an Indian Head penny but I can't tell what the date is. It looks like 1881 or 1891. If it is 1881 the 8's do not look the same but if it's a 9 the loop closes like an 8 which is why I need help. I'm just getting into coin collecting - inherited family coins. I know very little but super interested. Thanks for any input. Here is an image of the date.
