    1855 Flying Eagle Cent in Bronze
    Judd-168 Original, PR64 Red and Brown

    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.
    Ex: Palm Beach Signature (Heritage, 3/2005), lot 6658.

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