    Description

    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-191, Six-Leaf Clusters, PR64+

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-191, Pollock-234, R.5, PR64+ PCGS. Ex: Simpson. A transitional pattern that combines the regular dies of the Small Letters obverse of 1858 with 1859's Laurel Wreath reverse. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This is the much scarcer Pollock-234 variant, which has the Small Letters obverse that is combined with six-leaf clusters in the wreath on the reverse. The underlying bright copper-nickel alloy is accented by a slight overlay of reddish patina with an occasional dash of lilac interspersed.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29BB, PCGS# 11840)
