1856 FLYING EAGLE 1C PR66
FABULOUS GLOSSY SURFACES. JUST 1 GRADED HIGHER AT NGC.
The proof Flying Eagle Cent is one of the rarest types in all of U.S. numismatics. The first-year 1856 was produced in greater numbers than the other two issues of this type, but it is the most widely recognized in the market and, hence, commands the strongest premium. The 1857 and 1858 have substantially lower mintages, are much rarer and seemingly undervalued in today's market in relation to the 1856. All three issues, however, offer excellent opportunities for the advanced collector or numismatic investor.
