    1856 Flying Eagle Cent With Ornamental Shield
    Copper-Nickel, Judd-184, PR63

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-184, Pollock-220, Low R.7 PR63 PCGS. 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. The surfaces are light overall with tinges of tan-blue and pale rose patina. An attractive example of this interesting Flying Eagle cent pattern.
    From The Collection of William Rau.
