(1856) Flying Eagle cent, No Date, No Legend. J-179. P-207. S-1858-PT1b. R7. PR66BN PCGS. Gem Proof (13: 4,4,5) BN. Copper.
This is a fabulous Flying Eagle cent without the date or legend. The reverse is the same die used on the 1856 Snow-9 issue with a centering dot under the upper left serif of the N in CENT. There are die striations on this die from 11:00 to 5:00 indication the earliest use of the die. Only 10 examples are presently traced and this is the highest graded example for both the color group and for the numerical grade at PCGS.
The coin is a chocolate brown with a purple iridescence visible when tilted in the light. The mirrors are good and the strike is full. A small mark under the E in CENT on the reverse is the only mark on the coin. This serves to link it to the collection of Hillyer Ryder, later to Wayte Raymond; New Netherlands 3/51:471; Stack’s ANA sale 8/71:271.
This is one of the highlights of the Steve Brewer collection. Expect intense bidding pressure and plan accordingly.
