Gfhcoins's 1857 Flying Eagle Cent Vf + Collector Coin #9128

This is Gfhcoins's 1857 Flying Eagle Cent Vf + Collector Coin #9128.

The Flying Eagle cent is a United States coin that was minted from 1857 to 1858. The coin was designed by James B. Longacre. The Flying Eagle was the first small-sized cent coin minted in the US, replacing the earlier large cent.

The obverse of the coin depicts an eagle in flight, a unique subject for the obverse of American coins. The reverse of the coin has the words ONE CENT surrounded by a wreath, similar to the reverse on the later Indian Head cent and Wheat cent minted until 1958.

The United States Mint in Philadelphia struck about 700 Flying Eagle cents in 1856 as pattern pieces, a way to show influential congressmen and senators what these coins would look like. The coins became popular and were soon selling for $2.00 in auctions.
