    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-193, PR63

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-193, Pollock-236, R.5, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the regular-issue Small Letters 1858 cent. The reverse resembles the as-issued 1860 Indian cent with an oak wreath and ONE CENT with a shield at the top, but the shield is much broader and ornamental. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. This design was included in a 12-piece set and among the first patterns publicly offered for sale in 1858. Copper-gold surfaces show a few points of contact. A lintmark appears in the upper obverse field, and a nick occurs at NE in ONE. Iridescent accents of peach-gold, powder-blue, and violet deliver lovely eye appeal despite moderate evidence of carbon.
