    1855 Bronze Flying Eagle Cent
    Judd-168 Original, PR63 Brown

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4 PR63 Brown PCGS. 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 in the center of the reverse, inside a floral wreath similar to the large cent. The diameter is quarter-sized, nearly midway between the large and small cents. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. The surfaces are pleasing and light glossy brown, evenly matched on each side. A short strike-through on the bottom of the reverse most likely limits the grade as it appears like a post-striking defect.

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

    Had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible.
