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, P-211 (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.

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.
