    Gorgeous Premium Gem 1857 Flying Eagle Cent

    1857 1C MS66 PCGS. Type of 1856. FS-001, Snow-1. The Type of 1856 is most easily distinguished from the Type of 1857 by looking at the O in OF. On coins of the former hub variety, the center of that letter is square, while on examples of the latter hub variety it is round or oval. Snow-1 is identified by repunching to the left of all of the digits in the date, and the thin dentils above AMERICA. On the reverse, the right leaf by the T in CENT is lower than the left leaf by the C.
    The present specimen displays two shades of gorgeous gold-tan patination, and sharply struck design elements that offer a fairly nice contrast with the partially prooflike fields. The surfaces are immaculately preserved, revealing no significant contact marks or unsightly spots. A minute mark in the lower left (facing) obverse quadrant and a light fleck to the left of the N in CENT serve to identify the piece. As-struck die polish lines are evident in the fields on both sides. Population: 13 in 66, 0 finer (11/05).
    From The Joshua and Ally Walsh Collection of United States Cents.(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 226P, PCGS# 2016)
