Flying Eagle Cent. 1856. Snow-9, stage D. PCGS graded Proof 63. Always in strong demand because of the very low mintage, and hard to find in choice grades as offered here. The planchet on this one shows minor imperfections visible with a strong glass. Identifiable by a faint die line from the rim through the U of UNITED to the eagle's beak, and a light die crack from the tip of the beak down to the rim below, the reverse die has high leaves and the centering dot below the serif of N in CENT. Traces of acetate on the reverse. Lovely light golden tan in color and boldly struck (PCGS # 2037) .
Estimated Value $7,500 - 8,500.

Realized $9,200
