    Attractive 1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper, J-181

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-181, Pollock-211, 213, 216, R.7, PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. The obverse and reverse feature the design types that were used on "regular issue" and later Flying Eagle cents. Struck in pure copper with a plain edge, and accompanied with an analysis from S&N Labs summarizing the metallic content was copper, not bronze. The glossy, partially reflective fields show a few scattered hairlines and a colorful mixture of original red and brown colors. An elusive opportunity for the advanced pattern collector.
