    Description

    1858 Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-202, Pollock-246, R.6-7, PR 65 NGC. This hook-necked eagle variety of the Flying Eagle design shows a well proportioned bird in lifelike flight. The design is generally attributed to Longacre but the lettering suggests Anthony Paquet. The reverse presents a similar wreath to that used for circulating cents of 1859, but its leaves are in clusters of five like Breen's #1940, Breen's prototype 1858 cent. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. The razor sharp surfaces are subtly reflective and some light, original patina is exhibited. (PCGS# 60202)
