    2 Flying Eagle cents

    Well i figured I would never dig one of these so I saw them on Ebay and picked them up. An 1857 Flying Cent and an 1858 Flying Cent. Been wanting one so I saw where a fellow had these 2 for sale. He wanted $100 for the set. I ended up getting the set for $45 shipped. I am collecting all these coins for my kids when I am gone and departed. At least they will have some cool old coins to fight over.

    Dad, is that you?

    Cool cents. The Flying Eagle is my favorite small cent.

    The 1857 & 1858 LL (large letter) Flying Eagle cents @ $45 is slightly above market based on condition...

    However, their worth is whatever the buyer is willing to pay.

    Leave them as-is and do not clean.

    Now if you come across a 1856 FE, let me know...

    Several years ago I purchased an extremely well worn (maybe 1856 FE) for a couple of bucks...I'm thinking of using some chemicals to see if the date is truly an 1856 coin...if it is, the current value may be in the $7000 range...if not, it makes a great filler and conversation piece.

    It would be really cool if it did turn out to be an 1856!! Post a pic, you know you'll get several opinions from "us" guys.
