The number of coins minted and the year is printed below each opening of this folder. All H.E. Harris folders are made of acid-free materials for the protection and storage of your coins. The holes in this folder have a special LOCK-IN feature. But first, a word of caution: always hold a coin by the edge and never touch its obverse or reverse. We recommend you wear gloves when pressing your coins into place. Now that you are ready, simply place the coin with one edge tipped into the hole, and then press the high edge downward and toward the lowered edge (slantwise). Feel the snap? It's locked in! The Mint Act of February 21, 1857, replaced the copper large cent with a much smaller one. The new cent, designed by Chief Engraver James B. Longacre, featured a flying eagle on the obverse and an agricultural wreath on the reverse. Minted only in 1857 and 1858, the Flying Eagle cent is one of the shortest-lived of all U.S. coin designs. It's metallic composition (88% copper, 12% nickel) was extremely hard, making the cents difficult to strike.
