    1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper
    Judd-205, PR65 Brown

    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-205, Pollock-249, Snow-PT17b, R.8, PR65 Brown PCGS. CAC. Ex: Simpson. This interesting design pairs Paquet's small eagle obverse with a reverse similar to the issued 1860 Indian cent. The shield, however, is broad and has fancy scrollwork. Struck in copper with a plain edge. This design is fairly accessible in copper-nickel (Judd-204) but fewer than five or six copper representatives are believed to exist. Bob Simpson's Gem is a glossy chocolate-brown coin with pinpoint design detail throughout. Void of apparent contact.
