Be careful. Get at least 3-5 appraisals by experts before you sell it. Many experts will offer you less than FMV if they know you're a noobie in the collector coin market.
If I were you, I'd go onto a collector coin forum and get some feedback from people who are more knowledgeable than the idiots here.

I worked with Sotheby's in the past. Send an email and a picture of both sides of the coin to Sotheby's and Christie's and ask for an estimated value. You'll be surprised, they will most likely give you a free appraisal. Check their websites for how to do this.

Not to be a pooper but that's an Indian Head penny, nice to have, maybe to give to a child but they are rarely worth much, not in that shape anyway. I did a search, worth about a dollar. Who knows, maybe 5 to 10 bucks.

Yeoman lists all dates from 1900 to 1908 from Philadelphia at $2 in Good-4 condition.

I thought you were going to tell us you won the lottery.
google first result... Indian Head Penny Values. Indian Head pennies were struck by the hundreds of millions. Therefore, as a coin series, they are not rare. In fact, many dates in the Indian Head penny series are worth less than $3 to $5 in typical, circulated condition. Still, your return in investment is 300-500 times. :thumbup:
