According to Flying Eagle and Indian Cent specialist Rick Snow (2001), most 1856 Flying Eagle Cents encountered in today's market are examples of the Snow-9 die marriage. The author further opines that this variety is a restrike from 1858-1860 that was produced to satisfy numismatic demand for this historic first-year issue in the small-size Cent series. Almost certainly presented to a collector or someone else interested in caring for the piece at the time of delivery, the coin in this lot has survived the passage of time without acquiring any contact marks of note. Medium-tan surfaces are a bit subdued, however, as explains the Proof-63 designation. Sharply impressed from the dies, and housed in an older PCGS holder with a green insert. Two swirls of slightly deeper color at the lower-obverse and upper-reverse borders are mentioned for accuracy.
PCGS# 2037.
