    1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-184, Snow-PT1, PR62

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-184, Pollock-220, Snow-PT1, Low R.7 PR62 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. 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 O in OF is squared-off. 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 dies correspond to Rick Snow's Die Pair 2, without a line below the amulets on the left side of the shield. Snow writes that probably not more than 25 Judd-184 representatives were struck at some point between 1856 and 1858. This PR62 example is tan-gold with violet, steel, and peach-orange accents. A couple of stray marks appear over the date.
