    1855 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-171, AU Details

    1855 E1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-171, Pollock-196, Low R.7 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. The obverse features an eagle flying to the left, surrounded by 13 stars with the date at the bottom. The reverse shows a wreath with four leaves under the E in STATES. The diameter is similar to a quarter dollar, intermediate between the large and small cents. Struck in copper-nickel alloy with a plain edge. The surfaces are light gray overall. The nature of the damage that is mentioned is a mystery to us. The center of each side is generally flat, while the extreme edges of the peripheral devices, the stars, date, and reverse lettering are sharper defined near the rims.
