Question
1897 Indian head one cent coin fair to good condition

Answer
This is a pretty common Indian head.  In fair to good condition it would only be worth 25 to 50 cents.  It would be worth about a dollar if in problem free good condition.  Go to www.ebay.com and do a search for 1897 Indian cent and you'll see quite a few for sale, Jim
