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.
Very attractive with full detail. Cleaned years ago and now toned back to a pleasing light brown with a reddish tint. A coin that has the look of a choice proof!
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!
CAC approved. Super sharp strike and blazing mint luster on this outstanding Flying Eagle Cent. The surfaces are clean and virtually mark-free with zero carbon spotting. Fantastic quality!
