Description

Choice Cameo Proof 1857 Flying Eagle Cent

1857 1C Flying Eagle PR64 Cameo PCGS. Snow-PR1. The most desirable of the three die varieties Rick Snow has designated as proofs, since Snow describes them as follows: "PR1 is typically found with deep mirrors and an unquestionable proof look. PR2 examples seem to vary in quality with some examples questionable as true proofs. The PR3 die pair seems to have struck some proof quality examples and then put into service to strike business strikes, complicating attribution immensely." This is obvious proof that possesses needle-sharp motifs and luminous orange-gold fields. The central reverse has a few pinpoint flecks, and the obverse field has infrequent tiny contact marks. 1857 Flying Eagle proofs are many times rarer than their better known 1856 predecessors. Population: 9 in 64 Cameo, 3 finer (6/09).(Registry values: P2) (NGC ID# 2Z23, PCGS# 82040)
