    Okay, haven't seen this one yet. Please show off your Flying Eagle Cents . Short story... I've loved these coins since I luckily got one in 2005 in change believe it or not . Then not much later, found a very worn in a rotted log while Metal Detecting .
    1857..

    I don't have individual photos. Here is a photo of my collection in the antique and worn 1940 album.

    I love looking at all the grist under a loop. So much history stuck to this one.

    Here are mine, both 1857 & 1858. I would have mich more preferred getting in change or discoveing while metal detecting!

    Hi, is this an original coin struck a 2nd time recently with an old die? Is there any method to that madness?

    That 1856 shut me down. I have never owned one. I had a want list for one from a customer, but I could never find the right one. They seem to come in waves. Before the pandemic, there was a fair number of them at the shows.

    Here are my two.
