    1858 Hooked-Neck Flying Eagle Cent
    Judd-203, PR45

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-203, Pollock-247, R.5, PR45 NGC. The obverse has a hooked-neck eagle flying left with tall wings. The reverse is similar to that of the issued 1860 cent but there is no shield at 12 o'clock. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. A relatively common pattern, this particular piece made its way into circulation -- apparently for several years -- before it was noticed and pulled as "something different." Even wear over each side and original light brown surfaces.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29BJ, PCGS# 11869)

    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.
