One of the first "old" coins many of find when we begin metal
detecting is the Indian head penny.
Why did the Flying Eagle cent, which preceded the Indian head penny, last just three years?
Who was used as a model for the Indian on the penny?
And which Indian head penny is worth a thousand dollars, even in not-so-great condition?
These questions and more are all answered in this week's show.
