Description



Mark the switch from large cents to small cents, with this collection of (59) Indian Head and Flying Eagle one-cent coins. Large cents circulated from 1793-1857, but proved unpopular due to their inconvenient size. This led to a dramatic design change in 1856 with the short-lived Flying Eagle cent circulating for just two years, from 1857-1858. Then along came the Indian Head cent, which circulated from 1859-1909. This classic series proved a big hit with the public and has long been a favorite of collectors. Housed in a deluxe Dansco album with slipcase, this collection includes (3) Flying Eagle coins and a near run of (56/57) Indian Head Cents, absent only an example of the tough 1877 date.
