Description

Classic Proof 1856 Flying Eagle Cent

1856 1C Proof, Improperly Cleaned, NCS. Snow-9. A well struck golden-brown example that has Mint State sharpness, no wear is observed on the eagle's breast or the wreath. A cluster of wispy hairlines is noted on the upper obverse field, a small planchet flaw (as made) is located southeast of the N in CENT, and the obverse has a few faint indications of struck-in grease. All in all, the problems of this piece do not detract too much from the eye appeal, and it is preferable to a worn example.
From The Empire State Collection, Part Two.(#2037) (Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 227A, PCGS# 2037)
