Flying Eagle Cents - Released in 1857, Flying Eagle Cents were created to replace the unpopular large-sized copper cents. Called “nicks” because they contained nickel instead of just copper, Flying Eagles have proved extremely popular over the decades, especially since it is such a short series. The 1856 Flying Eagle Cent is technically a pattern coin, but due to its popularity and large mintage (for a pattern), it has been widely collected. It has also been widely counterfeited. The original mintage of this date was estimated to be 1,000 coins but has been updated to approximately 1,500 to 2,500 coins. The 1858 has both large and small letter designs.
Indian Head Cents - The second of the U.S. “small cents,” the Indian Head is one of the most popular U.S. coins ever struck. The obverse features Liberty wearing a feathered headdress, while the reverse depicts a wreath encircling the words “one cent.” Minted between 1859 and 1909, these popular cents came in various metals. In 1859, a copper-nickel cent with a laurel wreath reverse was first minted. It was followed by a copper-nickel oak wreath cent that was minted between 1860 and 1864. During 1864, both copper-nickel and bronze pennies were minted. Finally, bronze cents were minted between 1864 and the end of this series in 1909.
