These coins were recovered during the 1990 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Cottonwood Ranch in Sheridan County. The pennies, sometimes called an Indian Head cents or Indian Head pennies, shows Liberty with a head dress on the obverse side. The reverse side shows an oak wreath and shield surrounding the words "ONE CENT." The coin on the left was minted in 1865 and coin on the right in 1890. The sheep ranch was established by Abraham Pratt, from Yorkshire, England, in 1878. Pratt's son, John Fenton Pratt and his family continued to raise sheep at the ranch until 1904. Cottonwood Ranch is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
