    1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-192, Pollock-235, Snow-PT13, R.5, PR64+ Cameo PCGS. Ex: Simpson. The obverse is the familiar Small Letters 1858 cent. The pattern reverse generally resembles the 1860 regular issue reverse, but there is no shield at the top and the oak wreath is closed. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. USPatterns.com explains: " ... is one of the designs which was part of a 12 piece set sold by the Mint." Most of the original golden-tan color of the copper-nickel alloy is still present with a slight accent of reddish patina on each side. Fully struck.
