I have been working on the
manuscript for a book relating to Flying Eagle cents of 1856 to 1858 and the
American scene during those years.
The coins can be divided into
these basic varieties:
1858 Large Letters
1858 Small letters
Beyond the above, there are three
varieties of 1857 cents that have evidence of clashing with dies of other
denominations: half dollar, dollar (most often seen), and double eagle. Do any
MINT STATE examples of the double eagle clash mark cent exist? If so, let me
know as I have not learned of any to date.
All good wishes,
