Fantastic 1858 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern
Judd-199, High R.7, PR64

1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-199, Pollock-230, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. This extremely rare pattern features the standard Flying Eagle, Large Letters obverse design, combined with a reverse that showcases a large ornamental shield and oak wreath. Struck on a broad copper-nickel planchet, with a plain edge. USPatterns.com estimates fewer than half a dozen examples of Judd-199 are extant.
Beautiful copper-gold color dominates both sides of this near-Gem, joined by splashes of crimson and sky-blue on the obverse. Reflective fields highlight the motifs, irrespective of the angle of observation. A well executed strike imparts uniformly crisp definition to the design elements, enhancing the coin's overall eye appeal. The surfaces are well cared for, devoid of significant contacts or spots. A minor rim defect on the lower left obverse is the only mentionable blemish we can find. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer (2/09).
Ex: Crouch Collection (Superior, 6/1977), lot 42; William Sieck Collection (Bowers and Ruddy, 7/1981), lot 9; Anaheim Auction (Bowers and Merena, 5/2006), lot 1421.
From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection. (PCGS# 11858)
