1856 Flying Eagle Cent, PR64
Snow-9 Restrike

1856 1C PR64 PCGS. CAC. Snow-9. The 1856 Flying Eagle cent is prized by pattern collectors and small cent specialists alike. The issue is easily the rarest date of the small cent denomination. Initially made as a pattern (Judd-180) to demonstrate the new design and small diameter to Congressmen, additional specimens were produced at later times to satisfy collector demand. The original mintage was mostly, if not entirely, struck from the Snow-3 die pair, while the restrikes were mostly from Snow-9 dies. The total number of pieces struck probably reached 2,000 examples. This well-struck near-Gem specimen displays the faint die line at I in UNITED and the center dot under the serif of N in CENT that identify the Snow-9 dies. The reflective surfaces show a mixture of copper-red and light brown hues, with minimal signs of contact. PCGS has graded 45 numerically finer specimens (11/12).
