Flying Eagles (1856 - 1858) | The Coin Shop

Flying Eagles

Flying Eagle Cents.

1857 through 1858 cents stand out as highly sought after by collector coins because of the bold flying bald eagle design. A big departure from the usual Lady Liberty portraits found on other coin series at the time. Additionally the Flying Eagle penny was a significant reduction in size from the large copper cents of prior years. The 1856 Flying Eagle is a Pattern Coin and is extremely rare.
