    1855 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern, Judd-168
    PR60 Brown, Woodgrain Surfaces

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4, PR60 Brown NGC. 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 in bronze with a plain edge. Each side shows a woodgrain texture, similar to that seen on San Francisco cents from 1909, most likely from improper mixture of the bronze alloy. This pattern issue is known for its general lack of red color. On this particular piece the woodgrain texture actually preserves thin streaks of original red beneath the otherwise brown patina. The strike is soft on each side, and there a few specks of carbon on the obverse.
