I think I have a pair here. Large being the darker.
These Flying Eagle cents look nothing like these pictures but the pictures should be sharp enough.
Thanks!

I am sure of one thing when it comes to coins.

Looks right to me. A and M of AMERICA touch in the large lettering but not the small lettering.

Thanks, I would estimate ( don't go by colors and images ) that the one on the right is VF25 or VF30 and the one on the left VF20 maybe VF25. I'll value them at the lower end.

You've identified them correctly and I agree with your grading. The Large Letter example appears to be the much nicer of the two.

Thanks Frog. Those peach colored pictures I put up are from my microscope at night with lights. They look almost the same, believe it or not, as eachother at arms length.

Which reverse types do they have? High leaves or low leaves? The Small letters high leaves is the scarcest combo I believe.
