Description:
Important R.8 Judd-187A Flying Eagle Cent
Struck in Nickel, PR64
1857 DT1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-187A, Pollock-224, R.8, PR64 PCGS. High Leaves reverse, Closed E in ONE. Struck in nickel or German silver with a plain edge from regular dies; the tenth edition of Judd favors favors the former, noting for both Judd-187 and Judd-187A that "Two or three examples of each metal are believed to exist." While multiples of the Judd-187, which was struck in copper, are known, the Pollock reference lists only one distinct example of the Judd-187A, which is in fact the present piece, and the only specimen certified by NGC or PCGS. It is conceivable that Judd-187A is unique, since our records turn up no additional auction appearances.
While the pattern Flying Eagle cents of 1856 are the most famous patterns bearing the design, they are far from the only ones, as the Judd-187A demonstrates, though Judd cautions that "All patterns dated from 1857 range from rare to unobtainable," and the Judd-187A occupies the latter end of the scale. This lustrous and crisply struck near-Gem has unblemished pearl-gray and chestnut surfaces. A small flaw is noted below the eagle's neck, but aside from that, the surfaces are largely mark-free. This example will make a highly desirable addition to an advanced Flying Eagle cent cabinet. Housed in a first generation holder which describes the piece as "MS64" (it is actually a proof) and obsolete PCGS number 20308 (now 11822).
Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card included.
