    1857 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS MS64 (Obverse of 1856, FS-401b)


    This 1857 obverse die was made from an 1856 hub, likely in 1856, but was left undated until 1857. One of the chief pick-up points is the peripheral lettering, especially the O in OF, which is wider and more open than on the 1857 hub. A lustrous and attractive example of this interesting variety with light tan color and pleasing surfaces free of specks. Nice!
