Have this new purchase 1858 Flying Eagle which appears to have been struck out of collar based on the lower reverse 'dents'. Is this an accurate statement?

Looks like a broadstrike to me.

Could someone be a bit more specific as to what feature makes the OP think it's a broadstrike (not my specialty, honestly curious)?
I tend to think MAD as Raymo says...

Nice coin btw!

Check the diameter at various points and compare them to a known collar struck coin's diameter.

I have to agree with a slight MAD strike.
If it was a broadstrike (struck out of collar)
the diameter of the coin would be much greater
as there would be nothing to hold the coin from
spreading when struck.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

Thank you for all who posted! I never was versed on the difference between a broad strike and MAD. I gained knowledge today from all who posted.
