    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, PR64+
    Judd-184, Pleasing Color and Luster

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-184, Pollock-220, Low R.7, PR64+ PCGS. CAC. Ex: Exemplar Collection. Eagle Eye Photo Seal, card included. The obverse is the same as the famous Judd-180 Flying Eagle cent, the Snow obverse 2 with a pointed U in UNITED. The reverse has an oak wreath with the denomination ONE CENT and ornamental shield above. Believed to be a restrike mule, as the reverse was probably created in 1858. Thus, these are considered a "fantasy pieces." Nevertheless, these pieces have long been considered an integral part of the pattern series and are avidly sought after by Flying Eagle and Indian cent collectors as well as pattern specialists.

    An exemplary example, this high-end near-Gem exhibits gorgeous chestnut-brown color, with splashes of plum and violet appearing on the center of the reverse. Strong luster and minimally marked surfaces are additional attributes of this attractive piece. Population: 4 in 64 (1 in 64+), 2 finer (2/14).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29B3, PCGS# 11808)
