1858 Pattern Cent. Copper-nickel, plain edge. PCGS graded Proof 64. Pop 16; 9 in 65; 1 in 66. In 1858 many pattern cents were designed and struck. These were issued by the Mint in sets of twelve. These sets ordinarily contained pieces with 3 obverses; the flying eagle with small letters, the small flying eagle and the Indian head, each combined with the 4 reverses; the corn, wheat, cotton and tobacco wreath, the laurel wreath, the oak wreath and the oak wreath with the broad, ornamented shield. However, at least one set with the large flying eagle with large letters and the 4 reverses were issued. Individual coins from these sets are extremely popular with Pattern collectors (PCGS # 11871) .
Estimated Value $2,200 - 2,500.
