    1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper
    Judd-185, AU Details

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-185, Pollock-221, High R.7 -- Damage -- PCGS Genuine. AU Details. Judd-185 is an extremely rare pattern, likely produced circa 1858 for sale to collectors. Survivors number as few as three or four pieces, per, although Pollock listed six examples in his 1994 roster. Interestingly, despite the issue's rarity, there were two representatives offered in New York Coin & Stamp Company's June 1890 sale of the Lorin G. Parmelee Collection; the specimens were described as "rare" and realized $4.50 each, a substantial sum for the period. This is a colorful example that displays deep reddish-brown and moss-green patina on each side (in varying degrees).
