    Description

    "The Mint Act of February 21, 1857, replaced the old copper large cent with a small-diameter cent designed by Chief Engraver James B. Longacre. His new motif used a flying eagle combined with an agricultural wreath. Flying Eagle cents were produced for circulation only in 1857 and 1858. The Indian Head cents of 1859 had a laurel or olive wreath ( the Mint used both terms ) on the reverse. In 1860 this was changed to an oak-wreath-and-shield motif." - Whitman Publishing
