    Judd-164 Cent Pattern, Double Struck, PR64 Brown
    The Second Such Piece We Have Seen

    1854 P1C Flying Eagle Cent--Double Struck--Judd-164 Original, Pollock-189, R.5, PR64 Brown ANACS. Flying eagle design with a hook-neck eagle on the obverse, surrounded by stars and the date below. The reverse closely resembles the regular dies issue for the large cent. Struck in either copper or bronze with a plain edge.
    This is the second example of a double struck Judd-164 we have seen. The other was in our 2003 ANA Sale. At first it seemed it must be the same coin. However, there are a couple of spots that do not match that piece. The description of the doubling exactly matches the coin from five years ago: "It appears that the reverse was struck from a misaligned die. ... Most of the evidence of the first strike was obliterated but traces of the lettering still can be seen in several places, most notably on UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. ONE CENT also shows evidence of having been struck twice, and there is slight doubling on several of the leaves in the wreath."
    The brown surfaces show a slight overlay of blue, most notably on the reverse. The identifying spots on this piece are located below the eagle's beak, behind the trailing wing, and next to star 7.
