    Judd-168 Original Flying Eagle
    1855 Cent, PR63 Brown

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4, PR63 Brown PCGS. 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 from clashed dies in bronze with a plain edge. This is a precisely struck cent whose deep brown surfaces exhibit plum-mauve and golden-tan shades once rotated beneath a light. Infrequent minute carbon determines the grade.

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