    Very Rare Undated Flying Eagle Cent Pattern, Judd-179

    (1856) P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-179, Pollock-207, Low R.7, PR64 Brown PCGS. Snow-1858 PT1b. Similar to the regular issue Flying Eagle Cent, except that the obverse legends (UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the date) are absent. Although no date is present, this pattern has been traditionally assigned with the 1856 varieties. Rick Snow believes that Judd-179 was struck in 1858, as part of an extensive series of pattern issues produced that year. The reverse die, however, was used on several 1856 Cent die marriages, including S-5, S-6, S-7, and (especially) S-9. It is identified by a tiny die scratch on the left ribbon end. Struck in copper with a plain edge. A razor-sharp chocolate-brown specimen that is seemingly immaculate aside from a whisper of verdigris on the reverse. Housed in an older green label holder. Snow opines "perhaps as many as 15 were struck." PCGS has certified six pieces in all grades, which may encompass duplicate submissions.(#11783) (PCGS# 11783)
