This is the last IHC I felt would grade problem free out of the 21 "uncirculated" labeled IHCs. 16 seemed to have black spots and verdigris, and wont be posted. I may at some point in the future see if I can preserve them.

Here is a 1893 Indian Head cent for your consideration. Out of the 5 IHCs posted I feel this one has the best detail, luster and in hand eye appeal. I'm thinking mid to high MS range. What are your opinions on grade/condition? Worth getting slabbed?

I believe what you're seeing is possibly strike weakness or maybe Die Deterioration. I do not believe this coin was circulated. Here's a different picture from another angle and different lighting.

Tough one, lower hair curl and high on cheekbone have me wondering if slightly circulated or weak strike... AU 58 or MS63BN is where I'd put it...IMO

Another nice Indian cent, could grade 63 or 64BN. Probably not worth having graded from an economic standpoint. However, I might consider sending off your best coins to ANACS under one of their submission specials. Cost per coin should be under $15 and the slabs provide protection and proof of authenticity. At a minimum that would help preserve these attractive pieces.

your original photos are not helping as much as the vid but the vid is a little far away. I think the lighting and photo are showing the fields as flat especially the reverse which in the vid does not appear to be the case. I think its in the MS63-64BN range
