Unc (11: 3,4,4) This is the original striking in a Mint State format. The grading services seem to be stuck on calling it a Proof for now, but it is the MS version. It is as fully struck as this die pair comes. The grade is limited by a few light marks and some hairlines by the date. The Snow-3 die pair is accepted to be the original striking. This is part of the 635 examples struck in late 1856 and distributed to Congress to enact the legislation for the small cent. Very historical and desirable.
