Check out these Flying Eagle Small Cents for sale that were originally issued from 1856 to 1858. The Flying Eagle Cent was the successor to the large cent, which was too expensive to make and unpopular with the American people. James Barton Longacre designed the new and improved compact small cent. The front of the coin shows a flying eagle similar to the silver dollars minted in the 1830’s designed by Christian Gobrecht. The back of the coin displays an agricultural wreath consisting of corn, wheat, cotton, and tobacco leaves. The very popular Indian Head Small Cent succeeded the Indian Head design in 1859.
