    Gem 1855 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern, Judd-168

    1855 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-168 Original, Pollock-193, R.4, PR65 Red and 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 date 1855 is below with slanted 5s, and the reverse is similar to the large cent. The planchet is slightly smaller than the large cent, obviously a transitional pattern between the "old coppers" and small cents that were first struck in 1856. Struck in bronze with a plain edge. Even brown patina covers each side. The strike lacks highpoint definition, as seen on most large cents. There are no mentionable contact marks on either side. However, a tiny piece of plastic was caught in the encasement and at first glance looks like a rim nick.
