Hello Coin People!

 

This is my first post, so apologies if I am putting this in the wrong forum. I also did a quick search, but couldn't find a clear answer to my issue.

 

I have an Indian Head penny. But, unlike other pennies I have seen this penny has the Indian head on both sides of the coin and each side has a different year.

 

One side shows the penny marked as 1887 with the Indian Head.

The other side also has an Indian Head marked as 1904.

 

Any advice or information about this coin? Is this unusual?

 

I'll try and get some better quality photos shortly.

This is something put together as a novelty. They are not common with Indian Head cents now but we're plentiful years ago.

Thank you for the info! Is there any place online I can read bout this novelty?

 

Edit: Ah, searching Goog with 'novelty' among the terms leads me in the right direction. Thanks again for the info!
