Choice 1856 Flying Eagle Cent. PCGS graded MS-64. Here's an elegant looking specimen of this rarity, currently housed in a 1st Generation slab. It's been in an old collection for many years, and was certified at the owner's request when PCGS started in business. The strike is exceptionally bold, making the eagle stand out against the semi-reflective field. Some old carbon flecks don't take much away from its eye appeal, which is largely the result of bright luster slightly toned to golden brown. Not quite superb, but surely one of the finer examples of this great popular rarity to be found. A treasure.

Realized $17,250
