1858 Flying Eagle Cent. Large Letters. MS-64 (NGC). Pleasing mint color throughout and boldly struck, with fully ruffled feathers on the eagle's chest, tail and wing, areas often found lacking any depth of strike on these short-lived Flying Eagles. Spot-free and handsome, with the usual golden-copper mix from the blend of nickel and copper used in the planchet stock.
