    Experimental Alloy 1855 Flying Eagle Cent
    Judd-170a, PR64

    1855 1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-170a, R.8, PR64 PCGS. 113.6 grains. Thirteen stars surround an eagle that flies slightly upward, similar to the Christian Gobrecht/Titian Peale flying eagle design for the Gobrecht dollars but with a longer, curved neck to the eagle. The date 1855 is below with slanted 5s, and the reverse is similar to the large cent. The planchet is slightly smaller than the large cent, but larger than the famous 1856 Flying Eagle cent. Struck with a plain edge in an alloy of 86% copper, 14% nickel, per the PCGS insert. Orange borders frame olive-gray centers. Well preserved and typically struck with a minor retained obverse lamination at 1 o'clock. Struck from boldly clashed dies. (PCGS# 62428)
