    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-203, PR64

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-203, Pollock-247, R.5, PR64 PCGS Ex: Simpson. The obverse shows a hooked-neck eagle flying left with tall wings. On the reverse the denomination is set within a wide oak wreath with an olive sprig and a group of three arrows are wrapped into the bottom of the wreath. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. The Judd-203 is one of the designs that was part of a 12-piece set sold by the mint to collectors. This is an uncommonly attractive example. The lightness of the copper-nickel composition is enhanced by an irregular overlay of reddish patina on each side.
