    Description

    1854 Original Flying Eagle Cent Pattern, Judd-164
    PR66 Brown
    With Bronze Metallurgical Composition Specified

    1854 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-164 Original, Pollock-189, R.5, PR66 Brown NGC. The hook-necked flying eagle design is surrounded by stars and the date below. The reverse closely resembles the regular dies issue for the large cent, although the wreath and letters are smaller, as is the diameter. Struck in a bronze composition and specified exactly on the insert as: 93% copper, 6% tin, and 1 % zinc. The piece weighs 95.5 grains (also on the insert), which places it in the range for original strikings (90 to 100 grains), while restrikes are in the 113-grain range. Plain edge. The surfaces show even deep brown and blue patina with nicely reflective fields and sharply struck devices. There are no mentionable defects on either side. (NGC ID# 29A9, PCGS# 11678)
