Description & Analysis

No record exists of how many proof 1857 Flying Eagle Cents were coined, but the number clearly was small. The figure of 100 included here is merely an estimate and is likely on the high side. This is the second rarest proof issue in the entire small cent series, only the 1864 L variety being more rare.

For the fortunate few who are able to obtain an example, the typical 1857 proof is quite well made and displays very brilliant fields. Unlike currency pieces of this date, the strike is absolutely complete. All proofs are of the Type of 1857, while currency pieces are rarely found with the transitional Type of 1856 obverse.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
