    1858 Flying Eagle, Oak Wreath
    Cent Pattern, Judd-192, PR64

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-192, Pollock-235, R.5, PR64 NGC.
    Design.
    The obverse is struck from the regular 1858 Flying Eagle cent, Small Letters die, while the reverse is an Oak Wreath design. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge.

    Commentary.
    The Flying Eagle and Indian cents of 1856-60 underwent several different changes in the design of the reverse wreath, many of them documented via pattern issues. The first wreath on the regular-issue Flying Eagle cents of 1857 and 1858 (as well as some of the 1856 patterns) comprised corn, wheat, oak, and tobacco. Then in 1859, the first copper-nickel Indian cents had a Laurel Wreath reverse, with no shield. Introduced in 1860 and running through the series' end, the Oak Wreath, With Shield reverse included a wreath somewhat similar to the oak wreath on the present pattern, of course with the noted addition of an ornamental shield at the wreath opening.

    Physical Description.
    Attractive pinkish-tan surfaces show just a few trivial dark flecks, and a small planchet lamination is noted just northwest of the 1 in the date, providing a pedigree identifier. There is minor strike softness on the O of ONE on the reverse. NGC Census: 6 in PR64; 7 finer, including two PR64 Cameos. PCGS Population: 16 in PR64, 7 finer (12/08).
