Description:
Very Rare 1856 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern Struck With 25% Nickel Alloy, Judd-183
1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-183, Pollock-217, R.7, PR61 PCGS. Flying Eagle Cent pattern, struck from "Reverse C," which differs from the other three pattern reverses by the cotton leaves on the reverse being incised rather than struck in relief. Struck in a nickel alloy (25% nickel and 75% copper) with a plain edge. This is the first example of this rare pattern that we have offered for sale since July 1994. It is curious just how much the appearance and overall strike is affected by a relatively small change in the composition of the copper-nickel alloy. Regular issue Flying Eagle Cents were struck in .880 copper and .120 nickel alloy. By doubling the amount of nickel used in this pattern, the coin takes on a whitish-silvery appearance, and the striking details are very weak in some areas. The head, neck, and breast of the eagle are essentially unaffected by the relief cut into the die. The center of the reverse is also very weak with ONE CENT just barely legible. There is just a bit of golden patina around the peripheries and there are a number of very small contact marks scattered over each side. (PCGS# 11805)
