1858 Transitional Flying Eagle Cent
1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-191, Pollock-233, R.5, PR65
Judd-191, Pollock-233, PR65 Cameo
Design. Another transitional issue: The obverse is the regular Flying Eagle cent of 1858, but the reverse is that of 1859, the Laurel Wreath reverse, rather than the heavier wreath of corn, wheat, cotton, and tobacco that appears on the 1858 regular issue. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.
Commentary. This pattern issue was struck in two types, both lumped together in Judd as number 191, but given separate numbers in Andrew W. Pollock III's United States Patterns and Related Issues. Pollock-233 (as here) shows five-leaf clusters on the reverse, while Pollock-234, considerably rarer, shows clusters of six leaves.
Physical Description. This pretty Gem Cameo coin displays well-struck, distraction-free pinkish-tan surfaces on each side, with excellent eye appeal and noticeable field-device contrast. Like so many pieces in this remarkable collection, the piece was obviously purchased with an eye toward quality. NGC Census: This is the sole Judd-191 graded by NGC with a Cameo designation, with two pieces graded PR66 with no designation. PCGS Population: The finest graded are five PR65 pieces without the cameo designation (12/08).
Provenance. Ex: Quality (12/1972).
