1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
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.
