    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-198, Snow-PT3, PR66

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-198, Pollock-229, Snow-PT3, Low R.6, PR66 PCGS. CAC Ex: Simpson. The adopted Flying Eagle cent design with large letters on the obverse, while the reverse has a wide oak wreath with a broad, ornamental shield at the top. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge from slightly rotated dies. Rick Snow believes no more than 20 of these Judd-198 representatives were struck. This Premium Gem is the single finest representative at PCGS (10/20). It features orange and rose-violet iridescence over smooth amber-gold surfaces.
