1856 1C Flying Eagle 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.

1856 1C Flying Eagle 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.
