This is a heavily worn Indian cent that I presume had a weakly struck 9(?) that just happened to have worn away first?

Struck Through Grease. You see this occasionally on Indian Heads, especially from the 1890s for some reason.

to CCF. Looks like a 1885 to me.

It's an 1895. Look at where the tail feather is pointing(C-A). 1885 is between I-C or at the C.

Right, can't be 1885. Has to be 1895.

Thank you all for the feedback (and welcomes), and I appreciated reading the Struck Through Grease link.
