    1855 Flying Eagle Cent in German Silver
    Judd-171a, PR55

    1855 P1C Cent, Judd-171a, Pollock-196, Low R.7, PR55 NGC. 116.5 gm. The obverse depicts a large eagle flying left, along with 13 peripheral stars and the date below. The reverse design resembles the contemporary cent, except the wreath is smaller in scale. The diameter is slightly reduced from a large cent. Struck in German silver alloy with a plain edge. The specific alloy of this piece has been metallurgically tested and the results are: 65% copper, 17% zinc, and 18% nickel. Graded PR55 by NGC, though there is no indication of circulation wear. Instead, this is a softly struck specimen with unabraded surfaces. One small spot is near star 2.
