Indian Head pennies worth anything?

To All,
  I was wondering I found my dadds old Indian Head penny collection in which
he has about 100 from 1863-1909 (most 1900-1909). I was wondering how much
I could get for these from a decent coin-dealer. They all all in different
levels of wear. Thanks!

Karen

Karen, check whether you can see the word LIBERTY clearly on the
head-dress.  This will tell you if the condition is good enough.  
Most of your coins are later ones and fairly common.  Check
if you have an 1877; even in somewhat worn condition such a coin is worth
quite a few hundred dollars.  Later coins in a mint condition will be worth
at least $20 or more even in the later dates.  Sounds as if you should
check a coin values catalogue--try the local library.
