    Gem Proof 1855 Flying Eagle Cent
    Judd-170a

    1855 E1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-170a, Pollock-Unlisted, R.7, PR65 PCGS. Thirteen stars surround an eagle that is flying slightly upward, similar to the Christian Gobrecht/Titian Peale flying eagle design for the Gobrecht dollars (and soon the Flying Eagle cents). The reverse design is similar to the issued large cent. The diameter is intermediate between the large cents struck for commerce in 1855 and the small cents that were first produced in 1856. Struck with a plain edge in an alloy of 91.8% copper and 8.2% nickel, per the PCGS insert. Weight 99.50 grains. This lovely Gem has prominently mirrored fields and a meticulous strike. The rose-gold and lime surfaces are unabraded and carbon-free. The dies are boldly clashed, as usually seen for Judd-168 and its alloy variants. (PCGS# 62428)
