The obverse, designed by James Barton Longacre, shows a figure of Liberty.  The reverse is a nearly exact copy of the Flying Eagle Cent.  In the type 3, Liberty’s head was enlarged, her hair was arranged differently, and the head dress was shifted toward a more horizontal plane.  The purpose of these changes was to minimize the number of places where recessed areas in the dies opposed each other, allowing metal to flow into the dies more evenly and allowing the coins to become “fully struck.”
