Description

1857 Flying Eagle Cent, PR65
Estimated Mintage: 50 Pieces

1857 1C PR65 PCGS. CAC. The mintage of proof 1857 Flying Eagle cents has traditionally been estimated at 485 pieces, but Richard Snow believes the true production total was approximately 50 examples, making this date one of the most challenging of the series. Proofs in Gem condition are very rare today, and only one coin has been certified in higher numeric grade by either of the leading grading services (8/10). The present coin is a stunning Gem, with reflective red surfaces, accented by wisps of lavender. The extraordinary strike imparts fine detail to all design elements, and the fields show only the most inconsequential flaws without a loupe.
From The Westmoreland County Collection, Part Three.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 227B, PCGS# 2040)
