    1855 Flying Eagle Cent, MS61 Brown
    Judd-168 Original

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4, MS61 Brown NGC. The crook-necked flying eagle on the obverse is similar to the design for the regular-issue Flying Eagle cent. The 5s in the date are slanted. ONE CENT is at the center reverse, inside a floral wreath similar to the large cent. The diameter is nearly midway between the large and small cents. Struck from clashed dies in copper with a plain edge. The present chocolate-brown specimen is beautiful for the grade. Boldly struck and unmarked, the grade appears decided by minor dark verdigris in peripheral design recesses.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29AG, PCGS# 11720)
