1855 Flying Eagle Cent in Bronze
1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4,
PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Thirteen stars surround
an eagle that is flying slightly upward, similar to that seen on
the Gobrecht dollar reverse. The reverse is based upon the
then-current large cent, but the wreath is diminished in scale.
Struck in bronze with a plain edge. Labeled Red and Brown,
Judd-168s are normally not seen with any trace of mint red. The red
on this piece is slightly and evenly mellowed over each side.
Shallow planchet streakiness is seen on the reverse.
Judd-168 Original, PR64 Red and Brown
Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2005), lot 6658.
Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29AG, PCGS# 11721)
