Description:
Transitional 1855 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern, Judd-168
With Elemental Analysis, PR66 Brown
1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4, PR66 Brown NGC. Ex: Lemus Collection. 91.4 grains. A reduced-diameter large cent, as begun in 1854, continuing the Flying Eagle motif for the obverse, with peripheral stars and date 1855 below. The reverse shows a circular wreath similar to the large cent in circulation, with four leaves under the E of STATES. Struck in copper (Judd-167) or bronze (Judd-168) with a plain edge. Since its sale in the Lemus Collection, the piece has been subjected to elemental analysis. The results are stated on the insert: 91% copper, 8% tin, and 1% zinc.
Each side has considerable visual interest. While most of both the obverse and reverse are deep blue (rather than brown), there is a wide swath of original, fiery red color on the lower right portion of the obverse. The reverse has streaky red luster and blue color. A lovely example of this popular pattern. In PR66 Brown this piece is tied with three other pieces at NGC as the numerically finest at that service--two others that are Brown, one Red and Brown. The finest at PCGS are a handful of PR65 coins (12/09).
Ex: ANA 80th Convention Sale (Stack's, 8/1971), lot 270. (PCGS# 11720)
