    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-206, PR65

    1858 1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-206, Pollock-242, R.5, PR65 PCGS. Snow-PT16. Paquet's Small Eagle pattern obverse is paired with the regular issue Low Leaves reverse. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. The surfaces display pronounced red color and at first we thought this might be one of the rare copper strikes. However, close examination of the squared-off rims show the much lighter lilac color one expects from a copper-nickel composition. The fields show remarkable depth of reflectivity and enhance the overall red seen across both sides.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29BM, PCGS# 11877)
