Copper 1856 Flying Eagle Cent
Gem Proof, Judd-181, Snow-5b

1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-181, Pollock-Unlisted, Snow-5b, High R.6, PR65 Brown PCGS. The familiar Snow-9 reverse die, identified by the tiny die scratch on the left wreath stem, is paired with the elusive Pointed U obverse, also used to coin Snow-2 and Snow-4. All 1856 Flying Eagle cents are technically patterns, but the vast majority are Judd-180 in copper-nickel format. Judd-181, struck in copper with a plain edge, is rare. The present specimen has rich toning impossible to find on a copper-nickel coin. The reverse is deep navy-blue, while the obverse has apple-green legends and golden-brown fields. Fully struck, and more reflective than seen on Judd-180 examples.
From The Bob Simpson Collection. (PCGS# 11792)
