    1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper
    Judd-181, Pollock-211, Snow-1
    PR64 Brown

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-181, Pollock-211, High R.6, PR64 Brown PCGS. Snow-1. The obverse shows the repunched 5 that is characteristic of Richard Snow's Obverse 1. The reverse has the tilted ONE CENT feature, described by Snow as Reverse A. Struck in copper with a plain edge. With the reverse in its proper vertical alignment with the ribbon bow at 6 o'clock and the branch terminals at 12 o'clock, ONE and CENT are both slanted sharply downward from left to right. This misalignment perhaps was the reason for early rejection of this die pair. Rich brown patina shows a bit of blue interspersed, and the devices on the obverse show the faint remnants of original red around the devices. Sharply defined throughout.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 29AY, PCGS# 11792)
