    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, Proof, AU Details
    Popular, Low-Mintage Small Cent, S-3, Judd-180

    1856 1C Snow-3 -- Whizzed -- NGC Details. Proof AU. The 1856 Flying Eagle cent is enthusiastically pursued by date and pattern collectors alike. The status of these coins as proofs or business-strikes is hotly debated by the experts, but the issue is incredibly popular with collectors of all disciplines. This well-detailed specimen shows just a trace of actual wear on the design elements, but the copper-red surfaces show unmistakable signs of whizzing. A planchet flaw at the first S in STATES makes a useful pedigree marker.
