    1856 Flying Eagle Cent
    XF Sharpness, Snow-3

    1856 1C -- Corroded, Tooled, Whizzed -- ANACS. XF40 Details. Snow-3. A majority of 1856 Flying Eagle cents are Snow-9 restrikes from the late 1850s, but the Snow-3 cents were struck in 1856 and distributed to Washington officials to demonstrate the new, reduced diameter cent. The present specimen was spent and, along with moderate wear, the borders became dark and the surfaces slightly granular due to environmental exposure. Decades later, the coin was whizzed to provide a consistent texture, but no tooling is readily evident.(Registry values: N4719)
