This fantasy muling was probably deliberately made for a collectors cabinet and employs the 1858 Indian head obverse with the centered date combined with Paquet's small flying eagle obverse.

The illustrated example, which is believed to be unique, is ex Judd, Sloss, Lauder lot 514, Superior 1/06 as NGC62, now PCGS63. Dr Judd owned the piece prior to 1940 as he is listed as the owner in the 1940 edition of the "Price Catalog of United States Pattern Coins" by Charles E. Green and Lee F. Hewitt where the piece is listed as AW252A.
