Here's the last minor score of the day from my mom's, an Indian Head penny from 1903. The obverse is pretty weather-worn, but the reverse is almost worse because some sort of clear glue (?) can be seen on the left side and as a drop to the right of the letter "E." The reverse seems like it was less exposed to the elements over the years, which I guess is why it's shinier. I've written and read about these coins before but had never seen one in person. They are so small! Only about 3/4" in diameter.
