Description

Important 1856 Snow-4 Flying Eagle Cent, PR63

1856 1C PR63 NGC. Snow-4, R.7. Surprisingly, this glittering proof is not the Snow-9 variety as expected. This piece has the Pointed U obverse of Snow-2, 4, and 5; with the Low Leaves reverse found only on Snow-4. In his reference, Rick Snow records five different compositions that were struck from these dies, including copper-nickel, copper, bronze, nickel alloy, and white metal, the latter unverified. This piece has every outward appearance of the copper-nickel composition, with its light tan color. Snow believes that about 25 of these were struck, all in 1858, and estimates that about a dozen survive today.
Both sides are fully reflective with mirrored fields on tan surfaces that host splashes of gold toning. The design features are boldly struck up. This Select proof has a light cameo contrast between the mirrored fields and lustrous devices.
From The Cliff Street Collection.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 227A, PCGS# 2037)
