Flying Eagle Cents were struck in Philadelphia from 1856 to 1858. 1856 dated coins were patterns issued to show Congress what the new small cents would look like.
It is estimated that 1500 to 2500 pieces were issued in 1856, most being proof examples. The Flying Eagle Cent series also has an overdate, 1858/7, and two letter variations for the 1858 dated Flying Eagle Cent.
#137013: CAC approved. Beautiful original copper-nickel tan luster and excellent eye appeal.
#134217: Strong flashy luster. Slight uneven strike fails to deter from great eye appeal.
#204332: CAC approved. Well struck and lustrous with woodgrain red surfaces. There are virtually no marks and the eye appeal is excellent on this seemingly undergraded 'Flyer'!
#140185: CAC. A splendid coin with wonderful color and flashy luster. This beauty definitely has claims to a 66 grade which would carry a 15k price tag!
#120687: CAC approved. Super well struck with very few marks and gorgeous copper-nickel red luster. Better eye appeal than most of the MS-65 Flying Eagle Cents we've seen!
