Description:
Popular 1855 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern
Judd-168, PR66 Brown
1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168, Pollock-193, R.4, PR66 Brown NGC. Thirteen stars surround an eagle that is flying slightly upward, similar to the Christian Gobrecht/Titian Peale flying eagle design for the Gobrecht dollars (and soon the Flying Eagle cents). The reverse design is similar to the issued large cent. The diameter is intermediate between the large cents struck for commerce in 1855 and the small cents that were first produced in 1856. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. There is wide variation in the composition of Flying Eagle cent patterns. This particular piece has been identified. It weighs 94.9 grains, and has a composition of 92% copper, 7% tin, and 1% zinc. The USPatterns.com website notes "extremely rare showing any red color." This is undoubtedly the case because of the presence of 7% tin in the composition. The fields are deeply reflective, and the piece has lovely bluish-tan color. Struck on a heavily striated planchet, which is most noticeable on the reverse, there are few surface distractions that are noticeable even with a magnifier. (PCGS# 11720)
