Description:
Original 1854 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern
Judd-164, PR66 Brown
1854 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-164 Original, Pollock-189, R.5, PR66 Brown NGC. The hook-necked flying eagle design surrounded by stars and the date below. The reverse closely resembles the regular dies issue for the large cent, although the wreath and letters are smaller, as is the diameter. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. This piece is apparently an original striking as the weight is specified on the insert as 89.3 grains, and USPatterns.com states that originals weigh between 90 and 100 grains, while restrikes weigh in the range of 113 grains.
This is the third compositional variant of this pattern we have handled recently. Curiously, all have slightly different metallurgical compositions. This piece is 91% copper, 7% tin, and 2% zinc. The other pieces were 93/6/1 and 95/3/2. The fields are deeply mirrored and each side displays innumerable die striations. The striking details are strong, but not quite complete in the center of the reverse; the surfaces have a bright reddish-tan appearance with deeper patina on the left side of the obverse. (PCGS# 11678)
