Description

Sharp Gem Proof 1856 Flying Eagle Cent, Snow-9

1856 1C PR65 NGC. Snow-9. Ex: Jules Reiver Collection. Considered a Proof-only variety without any known business strikes from these dies. The obverse has a short die line from the border to the upper right serif of I in UNITED. The reverse center dot is attached to the left side of N in CENT, just below the serif. A pinpoint-sharp Gem of this perennially popular key date Small Cent. Although technically a pattern, the 1856 is typically collected as part of the Flying Eagle Cent series. Its historical importance is unquestioned, not only because it introduced the Small Cent denomination, but because demand for examples fueled the growth of the coin collecting hobby throughout the second half of the nineteenth century. This attractive piece has dominant dusky peach-gold color. Well preserved, with only the faintest hairlines noted on the central reverse, and a few tiny flyspecks that are only likely to be found beneath a glass. A fleck above the E in ONE can be seen with the unaided eye and can serve as a pedigree identifier. Census: 28 in 65, 3 finer (7/07).
From The Santa Fe Collection.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 227A, PCGS# 2037)
