NGC, MS66, Flying Eagle Cent
Gem Unc 13 non-higher NGC (Top Pop)

Most pieces are less than fully struck. Weakness most often appears on the eagle's head and tail, as these features were opposite the wreath and thus had to compete its die cavity for metal fill.

This example is fully struck with very few marks. There is a small planchet void at 12:00 on the reverse.
