    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, PR64
    Snow-4, 10 Examples Traced
    Low Leaves Reverse

    1856 1C Snow-4 PR64 PCGS. Snow-4 features the Pointed U in UNITED and a Low Leaves reverse that was first employed in 1858. Diagnostic die lines appear in the dentils directly below the right ribbon end. According to Rick Snow: "This die was used on the 1858 Small Letter proof Flying Eagle (PR2) in the same die state as found on this issue, leading to the conclusion that they were struck at nearly the same time, most likely near the middle of 1858." Only 10 examples of this rare die marriage have been traced, with a single PR65 graded higher than this near-Gem. Each side exhibits an array of violet and steel-blue accents amid glowing golden-brown and copper-orange color. Flashy and strongly struck with minimal evidence of contact. (Variety PCGS# 389777, Base PCGS# 2037)
