    FLYING EAGLE CENTS

    I was wondering has anyone on this forum ever found a flying eagle penny...
    i know they are rare..minted only from 1856 to 1858..i don't think they even know how many where acutely minted...is this the hardest coin to find ?..i have never seen one posted

    Definetly not the hardest to find, a 20 cent coin or a half dime would be much harder, actually bordering impossible

    Not found with a metal detector, this one came out of a cabinet I bought at auction. I think someone used it as a shim! The rim near the eagle's beak looks hit on from the side. This is one of my favorite coin designs, next to Morgans.

    Re: FLYING EAGLE CENTS

    I was thinking I had found 4 but not sure, I know where 3 came from and can't find the 4th

    One was from a Civil War campsite on Folly Island near Charleston, One from Battery Park in
    Charleston, and one from Daniel Island outside of Charleston... the fisrt 2 were in really good shape,
    the last one you could just see a silauet of the Eagle, but since I already had 2 or 3 I knew what it
    was...
    That was back in 1992 93 time period..
    Just so much stuff has been taken from the ground... not much left anymore...

    Jeffro,

    Except for the rim damage that is a real nice FE cent. That's one of my favorite designs.

    Clad ain't bad but silver's better!

    Actually it was 4 total, as there were 2 in battery park. one was poor condition.
    But I've never gotton a 3 cent piece, with or without the silver center.
    I have a few shield nickels, one with Rays, a 2 cent piece, but no 1/2 cent piece.
    several seated dimes, and half dimes and 1 seated quarter.. (university if SC Columbia)
    and one bust half dime, displayed here last year...

    Re: FLYING EAGLE CENTS

    Never have found one detecting, still haven't found any indian heads yet either...my brother has two 1858 flying eagles both varieties, small and large letters, they are pretty worn down though but the date is plain on both.....they were passed down to him by my father, along with about a half book full of indian heads, i think that my great uncle gave them to my dad

    some of the indian heads in the book are in amazing condition...sure wish they were mine, but I wasn't interested in coin collecting when my dad gave them to my brother....at least I can admire them all the same
