1858 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
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.
