    Original 1855 Flying Eagle Proof Cent, Judd-168

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4--Obverse Improperly Cleaned--NGC. Proof. 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 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, obviously a transitional pattern between the "old coppers" and small cents that were first struck in 1856. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. The obverse devices are outlined in unnaturally bright red color, which stands in sharp contrast to the uniform blue-brown color seen on the reverse. Each side is die clashed, and the obverse shows a couple of marks and a few small spots.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29AG, PCGS# 11721)
