|The 1908-S Indian Head Cent made history as the first U.S. cent produced outside of the Philadelphia Mint for general circulation. This became possible because of a change in law a few years earlier which had previously prevented non-silver or non-gold coins from being produced elsewhere. All 1,115,000 1908-S Indian Head Cents were minted in November 1908. This example of the 1908-S Indian Head Cent has been graded XF40 by PCGS. The coin has an even medium brown color on both sides that is very pleasing. A few light marks and a couple of discolorations are present if you look closely, but the wear and remaining details are appropriate for the grade. An excellent overall example for the grade of the first branch mint cent.
