Lot Description
Obv: 13 peripheral stars surround a long-necked flying eagle, with its head tilted slightly upward, and the date 1855 below. Rev: similar to the later issued Flying Eagle cent reverse, but the wreath is smaller, with ONE CENT in the center and the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the periphery.<br /> <br /> This appealing example is generally well struck, save for slight weakness on the eagle's head and some of the obverse stars. A satiny reddish-brown specimen with unabraded surfaces. &nbsp;<br /> <br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;
