    Description

    1858 Flying Eagle Cent, MS66
    Luminous Large Letter Example

    1858 1C Large Letters MS66 PCGS. High Leaves Reverse, Closed E in ONE. The 1858 Flying Eagle cent is widely available in most grades, fueled by a mintage of 24.6 million coins, but the population plummets at the Premium Gem grade level and only a single finer piece is reported on the certified population reports. This boldly struck and carefully preserved representative displays rich coppery-gold hues over satiny mint luster. No major abrasions are observed, and there are only a few tiny, scattered specks discernible with a glass. Exceptional quality, ideal for type or date representation. Population: 29 in 66 (1 in 66+), 1 finer (5/15).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 272V, PCGS# 2019)

    Weight: 4.70 grams

    Metal: 88% Copper, 12% Nickel
