Jaime Hernandez: The 1908 Indian Cent is one of the more common dates in the series. It's mintage is well over 32 million coins struck. Buying a circulated example is fairly inexpensive in most grades, until you get to about  AU condition then examples become significantly higher. In Uncirculated grades they start to become much scarcer, especially in MS65 condition or higher. In MS66 condition there are less than a couple hundred examples known. In MS67 condition it is extremely scarce with less than a handful known.
