Description & Analysis

Judd-100, Pollock-110, R.8.

Design. The obverse is the regular Capped Bust (1836-1839) die, with date 1839. The reverse is a rather ungainly Flying Eagle design with plain field, similar to the Flying Eagle cents but with an awkward extra crook in the neck. The usual legends ring the rim. Struck in silver with a reeded edge.

Commentary. This is another incredibly rare pattern, with only two examples known, per all the standard references we possess. Another restrike from after the weight was changed as per the Mint Act of February 21, 1853. The former weight of 206.25 grains of .900 fine silver was lowered to 192 grains of .900 fine silver.
