The Flying Eagle cent of 1856 is probably the best known Proof of this year, being coined in fairly large numbers as examples to be distributed among lawmakers. Although strictly a pattern, it is included as it has long been collected as a regular issue. The remaining silver coins are represented by probably several dozen examples of each.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
