    1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Paired With an 1858 Reverse Die
    Judd-184, AU Details

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-184, Pollock-220, Low R.7 -- Cleaning -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Snow-PT1. The obverse was struck from the normal 1856 Flying Eagle cent dies, showing a flying eagle in a plain field with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the date below. The obverse is the Type of 1856, showing a squared-off inside to the O in OF. The reverse exhibits an oak wreath with ornamental shield above and the denomination ONE CENT in the center -- a design vaguely presaging the regular-issue reverse with shield and oak wreath of the 1860-1909 Indian cents. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. Rick Snow estimates that no more than 25 pieces were struck with this obverse / reverse combination. The surfaces are a bit bright from cleaning and slight friction shows over the high points of the devices.
