    Fantastic 1858 Flying Eagle Cent Pattern
    Judd-199, High R.7, PR64

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-199, Pollock-230, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. This extremely 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.
    Beautiful copper-gold color dominates both sides of this near-Gem, joined by splashes of crimson and sky-blue on the obverse. Reflective fields highlight the motifs, irrespective of the angle of observation. A well executed strike imparts uniformly crisp definition to the design elements, enhancing the coin's overall eye appeal. The surfaces are well cared for, devoid of significant contacts or spots. A minor rim defect on the lower left obverse is the only mentionable blemish we can find. Housed in a green label holder. Population: 1 in 64, 0 finer (2/09).

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
