1858 1C Large Letters MS67 PCGS #2019

LL - High leaves - normal dies

1858 1C Small Letters MS63 PCGS #2020

SL S-13 - same as PR-1 Die Pair for this example, but hard to call "proof format" just in appearance. It is not clear whether S-13 in Snow's book are photos of a PR-1 in MS format or not.

1858 1C Small Letters PR65+ PCGS #2043

SL PR-3. and PT-09. Low Leaves. (CAC) These seem to be struck during the creation of the 1858 pattern sets. Many are seen with less than typical proof quality, however this one has obvious proof qualities. Diagnostics include broken U hub and a line in denticles below right ribbon.

1858 1C Small Letters PR66 PCGS #2043

SL PR-1 and PT-10. High Leaves. (Only six known) This is an important variety as it shows the old high leaves reverse paired with the new small letters. This is one of six known, and is also listed in the pattern section of Snow's book under PT-10. These were likely struck when the Large Letter proofs were struck, and not later when the pattern sets were struck and sold.

1856 1C Flying Eagle S-3 PR66+ PCGS #47058

S-03, J-180. (Population 2/0) {Snow Book Plate Coin} Standard Copper Nickel. Repunched 5, High Leaves. Many experts believe that all S-03 examples are mint state examples specifically produced to be distributed to Congress to promote a new coinage bill, with 500-700 produced. This is one of the top 3 finest examples of the S-03, and this coin specifically, most likely falls into the mint state category. There is only one S-03 universally agreed as a true proof - the "Bluebird." Pedigree: EERC; Gorrell (2003); Jay Parino (2004); EERC; Tom Fore; Doug Wright.

1857 1C Flying Eagle PR64CAM PCGS #82040

PR-2. CAC A circular die scratch from the first A in AMERICA to the third feather of the wing tip. This is probably the best PR-2 as most come with planchet flaws.

1857 1C Flying Eagle PR64+ CAM PCGS #82040

PR-3. CAC The diagnostic for this coin is the diagonal file mark above the N in UNITED, and doubling on the U and the N. This coin was also put into production and is designated in the MS section as S-18.

1857 1C Flying Eagle PR65CAM PCGS #82040

PR-1. 1857 proofs are extremely rare. This coin exhibits deeply reflective fields and bold cameo devices.

1858 1C Large Letters PR66CAM PCGS #82042

1857 25C FS-901 Rev Die Clashed with Flying Eagle Cent MS64 PCGS #146037

S-08 Quarter. FS-901 - Pedigree Fivaz, Larry Steve, Tom Fore. This is the quarter clashed with the Flying Eagle S-8 above.

1856 1C Flying Eagle S-9 PR66 PCGS #147890

S-09, J-180. (Population 1/1, 67 in Foreside Collection). Standard Copper Nickel. S-09 is the most common of the 1856 die pairings, most likely struck in a quantity possibly as high as 1500 for collectors in 1858 along with S-04. Over a third of these are found in circulated grades, and rarely are high grade examples found that are nice. The Foreside example is clearly the finest S-09, with this coin coming in second. Luster on this coin is not adequately shown on this "Redbird." The PR67+ in the Simpson collection is an S-03. Pedigree: Doug Wright

1856 1C Flying Eagle S-1 PR64 PCGS #148710

S-01, J-180. (Population 1/0) {Snow Book Plate Coin} Standard composition of copper nickel. Most likely the first dies used, as "One Cent" is tilted, and thus the reverse die probably discarded. This coin was originally attributed as the copper J-181, but after testing, its status was changed to copper nickel. Pedigree: A. Judson Brenner (1914); Brenner ANS 1914 exhibit; Superior "Lee" 9/1988; Allstate Coin; Tucson Collection, EERC Variety sale 1, 1993; Midwest Collection; Tom Fore; Doug Wright.
