1857 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS MS65

Popular First Year Type Coin

First year of issue. Nice type coin. The Flying Eagle Cent replaced the Large Cent due to the high price of copper. This design became instantly popular. We like this coin because it is fully struck, has minimal marks, and has a beautiful "in-hand" eye appeal with nice, satiny luster.

Asking Price: $3,250.00
