Description

Transitional 1858 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern From the Eliasberg, Clapp, and Winsor Collections

1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-191, Pollock-233, R.5, PR64 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. A transitional pattern that combines the regular dies, Small Letters obverse from 1858 with the laurel wreath reverse of 1859. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. An attractive near-Gem, the orange-tan surfaces are pleasingly bright in the fields with needle sharp striking definition over the devices. Were it not for a lone obverse spot at the denticles after the eagle's tail, this mostly blemish-free specimen would probably have secured a PR65 rating.
Ex: Richard B. Winsor Collection (S.H. and H. Chapman, 12/1895), lot 1121, as part of a complete 12-piece set of 1858 Cent patterns; J.M. Clapp; Clapp estate; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 5/1996), lot 121. (NGC ID# 38KC, PCGS# 11840)

I know for a fact that the sale by Heritage was way beyond what I was offered by other people. If I had to do it over again, I would absolutely choose Heritage again.
