Transitional 1858 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern From the Eliasberg, Clapp, and Winsor Collections1858 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.
