Significant examples:
PCGS Proof-64 (illustrated above).  Ex - Superior Galleries' "Pre-Long Beach Sale", October 1-3, 2000, Lot 4408, where it was described as follows:  "Judd-212, Pollock-256. Copper-nickel. Plain Edge. Dusky original toning; a few flyspecks.  In 1858 many Pattern cents were designed and struck. These were issued by the Mint in sets of twelve. The sets ordinarily contained pieces with 3 obverses; the flying eagle with small letters, the small flying eagle and the Indian head, each combined with the 4 reverses; the corn, wheat, cotton and tobacco wreath, the laurel wreath, the oak wreath and the oak wreath with the broad, ornamented shield. However, at least one set with the large flying eagle with large letters and the 4 reverses were issued.  In the series with the Indian head obverse, such as this Judd-212, several die variations exist."
