The first of the flying eagle cent patterns. This is the popular design without date or legend. The reverse is Breen's reverse "D".
Examples were struck in the following combinations:
Copper-nickel J178/P206 with only 3 or 4 known.
Copper J179/P207 with over a dozen known.
Nickel P208. This is unconfirmed. Pollock lists the example as Woodside, but lot 70 was actually J219/P209. Judd dismissed this as an example of J178/P206.
