Lot Description
1858 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-193, Pollock-236, R.5, PR65 PCGS. Snow-PT11. The obverse is identical to the regular issue 1858 Small Letters cent. The reverse, while similar to that adopted for the Indian cent in 1860, displays a broad, ornamented shield at the top. Struck in copper-nickel with a plain edge. While a relatively common pattern, this design is popular with collectors and is relatively high-priced for an R.5. This is an exceptionally attractive example that shows strong reflectivity in the fields. Each side is overlaid in appealing shades of lilac-gray and deep rose.
