Description:
1855 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper
Judd-167, PR65 Brown
1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-167 Original, Pollock-193, R.5, PR65 Brown NGC. CAC.
Design.
Flying Eagle cent pattern in a large format, features a hooked-neck eagle flying left with slanting 5s on the obverse. ONE CENT in the center of the reverse is surrounded by a thick laurel wreath similar to that of a Coronet cent. Struck in copper with a plain edge.

Commentary. Many cent patterns were struck in 1855, in a bewildering array of compositions. Examples are known in copper, oroide, several different alloys of copper-nickel, German silver, and pure nickel. Judd-167 was struck in copper or bronze, with this piece being nearly 100% copper. Restrikes of Judd-167 are known. Examples with any amount of red color are very rare.

Physical Description. The design elements of this impressive Gem are sharply detailed throughout and the fields are remarkably free of contact marks. A few clash marks can be seen on each side and are especially prominent on the reverse. The pleasing satiny surfaces display attractive light brown patina, with a few hints of original red. Visual appeal is quite strong. Census: 3 in 65 Brown, 1 finer (3/13).
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 11709)
