1837 Feuchtwanger Composition Cent. One of the most interesting of "Hard Times Tokens", this coin was struck by Lewis Feuchtwanger in order to show Congress the viability of his metal alloy for coin striking. Interestingly, a smaller cent of this size was eventually adopted by the U.S. Mint, and the Flying Eagle design was not unlike the Feuchwanger Cent. Graded by NGC as AU-58, though the coin has better eye appeal.
