Description:
Famous 1856 Flying Eagle Cent
Snow-3, XF Details
1856 1C -- Improperly Cleaned -- NCS. Proof, XF Details. Snow-3. Snow-3 is associated with business strike patterns made in 1856 for distribution to Washington officials. As the Flying Eagle cent became common in circulation, many recipients of the Snow-3 pieces spent their examples, and the coins remained in commerce until their numismatic significance was recognized and they were set aside. The present coin has moderate wear and the chestnut-tan surfaces are subdued by a moderate cleaning. An opportunity to acquire the rarest date of the small cent denomination.(Registry values: N1) (NGC ID# 227A, PCGS# 2037)
