Lot Description
1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-184, Pollock-220, Low R.7, PR64 Cameo PCGS. Eagle Eye Photo Seal. The obverse is the same as the famous Judd-180 Flying Eagle cent, the Snow obverse 2 with a pointed U in UNITED. The reverse has an oak wreath with the denomination ONE CENT and ornamental shield above. Believed to be a restrike mule, as the reverse was probably created in 1858. Thus, these are considered a "fantasy pieces." Nevertheless, these pieces have long been considered an integral part of the pattern series and are avidly sought after by Flying Eagle and Indian cent collectors as well as pattern specialists. A flashy, unabraded, and well struck near-Gem that has minor obverse carbon flecks. From The New York Eye Appeal Collection, Part Three.
