Hello out there! I have had a time trying to find out any kind of information concerning a coin I come across. It is at best in good condition and the date is still visible but what has been a challenge for me concerning this coin is finding another with the same date! From what I have learned the flying eagle small cents was produced during the years of 1856-1858. This coin has a date on it that says 1859. I have had several people to look at it also just to be sure that I am seeing it correctly. They all agree that it says 1859. So can anyone help me figure out what the deal is with my Flying Eagle cent? Why does it have a date that suggest that it shouldn't exist?
