1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-183, Pollock-217, Snow-4, High
R.7, PR63 PCGS. Ex: Simpson. Snow-4 is identified by the
pointed U in UNITED and the die scratch in the dentils below the
right ribbon end. The die marriage is rare regardless of alloy,
listed as R.7 by Snow in either copper-nickel (88% copper, 12%
nickel) or nickel alloy (75% copper, 25% nickel) with a plain edge.
For the latter alloy, Rick Snow states just four specimens are
known. Various alloy combinations are known for this pattern. The
surfaces retain most of the original "whiteness" from the high
nickel alloy with dabs of slightly darker areas and a few specks of
Judd-183, Snow-4, PR63
