    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-206, PR67 Cameo

    1858 1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-206, Pollock-242, R.5, PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. The obverse displays a hook-necked eagle flying left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the date below. The reverse is the same used to coin regular issue 1858 Flying Eagle cents. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.

    Mint issued sets of 12 Flying Eagle cent patterns were popular with contemporary collectors at the time of issue. This particular design is frequently encountered in copper-nickel, although rarely seen in copper or in nickel composition. Sensational quality, this piece is fully struck with brilliant golden-tan surfaces that exhibit splashes of blue and violet. The surfaces are essentially flawless and examples with contrast are rare. In fact, this is the finest of just seven Cameo proofs that PCGS has certified by two points (1/21).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29BM, Variety PCGS# 389467, Base PCGS# 11877)
