    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, PR58
    Well Struck Snow-3

    1856 1C Snow-3 PR58 PCGS. A majority of 1856 Flying Eagle cents are Snow-9 proof restrikes made during the late 1850s. The Snow-3 cents are originals struck in the year they are dated, made for distribution to Washington officials to demonstrate the new small cent denomination. Snow-3 is predominantly coined as a business strike, but in recent years, PCGS has certified most 1856 Flying Eagle cents as proofs regardless of die variety. The typical Snow-3 example displays incompleteness on the eagle's breast feathers, and on the veins of the cotton leaves, but the present specimen is sharply struck. Evidence of wear is scant, and the straw-gold and lilac-gray surfaces are unmarked. Both sides exhibit a few peripheral specks of aqua residue.

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 47058, Base PCGS# 2037)
