    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, PR62
    Judd-183, Struck in Nickel
    Extremely Rare Snow-4d Variety

    1856 P1C Flying Eagle Cent, Judd-183, Pollock-217, Snow-4d, High R.7, PR62 PCGS. 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, and records the present piece as #3. The butter-gold surfaces show occasional minute granularity, as made, but are void of contact. An unobtrusive spot is centered above the 85 in the date. The strike is good, although slightly incomplete on the breast feathers.
