1855 Large Flying Eagle cent. J-168. P-193. S-PT1a. R-4. PR65RB PCGS (PS), 1st. Gen holder. Gem Proof (11: 3,3,5) RB 10%. Bronze. Four leaves under the E in STATES.
Full strike with medium mirrors, as is typical for this issue. Very few marks and a trace of original red in the protected areas. There are no marks or hairlines to note and it is a beautiful original example that looks like it slid out from an envelope after 150 years in hiding.
The fields on both sides show heavy die clashing near the central devices. This is die stage B/B in Snow. At least 100 examples of this issue were struck and they were distributed mostly to non-collectors. As a result, the vast majority were mishandled by their owners and few are found in such a high grade as this piece. (The coin number on the holder is from an early numbering system abandoned by PCGS a few months after grading started).
