    1856 Flying Eagle Cent, Snow-9, PR62
    Sharp and Appealing for the Grade

    1856 1C Snow-9 PR62 PCGS. A thin die line in the eagle's wing and a small spike off the left wreath stem identify this frequently seen variety. Snow-9 was produced during the second striking period of 1857 to 1860, although the exact number of pieces struck and in how many deliveries is unknown. Rick Snow suggests as many 1,500 Snow-9 proofs may have been coined, many of which are known in circulated condition today. It is likely that a number of pieces were released into circulation during the early part of the Civil War, either mistakenly or in the possible event that sales of the 1856 Flying Eagle cent had nearly dissolved by that point and the Mint was just unloading excess coins.

    All proof 1856 Flying Eagle cents are in high demand. This unworn example shows full detail throughout the eagle and wreath, and the modestly reflective fields exhibit few noticeable imperfections. Satiny bronze-gold color adorns each side.
