Snow-1, FS-401a, Repunched Date, Obverse of 1856 Variety

1857 1C Obverse of 1856, Repunched Date, Snow-1, FS-401a, MS66 PCGS CAC. Series expert Rick Snow believes variety S-1 represents the first regular-issue Flying Eagle cents minted in 1857. The dies were probably produced sans date at the same time as the 1856 pattern dies, as they both feature the same boxy lettering style. Undated dies were put into use once Congress authorized the new nickel cents on February 21, 1857. The historical and numismatic significance of the 1857 S-1 variety (with clear repunching on the date) make the issue highly desirable, as does the fact that examples are often fully struck with prooflike surfaces. While the issue is a hot commodity among Flying Eagle cent specialists, Snow adds that there are “Probably no more than 100 known,” this MS66 being one of the two finest.

Elements of rose, violet, and lavender complement the blatantly prooflike, coppery-gold surfaces of this Premium Gem Flying Eagle cent. A full strike is unsurprising for the variety, and each side lacks any impairments that deserve individual attention. This impeccable coin will undoubtedly serve as a badge of accomplishment in any advanced set. Population: 2 in 66, 0 finer.
