    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Rare Judd-199, PR63

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-199, Pollock-230, High R.7, PR63 NGC. This rare pattern features the standard Flying Eagle, Large Letters obverse design, combined with a reverse that showcases a large ornamental shield and oak wreath. Struck on a broad copper-nickel planchet, with a plain edge. USPatterns.com estimates fewer than half a dozen examples of Judd-199 are extant. Our Auction Archives only shows four pieces offered since 1992 -- three are PR64 and there may be duplication among them. This is a lovely piece that exhibits strong reddish patina throughout, a surprising amount actually for a copper-nickel product. The fields are brightly mirrored; there are a few specks of carbon present, otherwise the grade would be considerably higher.
