 FLYING EAGLE CENT. PCGS CERTIFICED ETRA FINE XF40. EXCELLENT EYE APPEAL, ALL DETAILS SHARP. In 1857 the U.S. Mint produced two different cents: the old-style Large Cent and a new smaller cent with an eagle flying left across the obverse. One of the motivating factors for the creation of the new "SMALL" cent was the high price of copper. Each new Small Cent required less than half the amount of copper than the Large Cent yielding significant savings for the U.S. Treasury. MINTAGE: 17,450,000 . NICE ORIGINAL SURFACES.
