    1856 Flying Eagle Cent in Copper-Nickel
    Judd-183, Snow-4, PR64

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-183, Pollock-217, Snow-4, High R.7, PR64 PCGS. CAC. 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 carbon.
