Bought this off eBay from crappy pictures, so I took a chance what I thought I saw. Plus got it for a "Best offer". Plus this will be my 41st, I'm hooked on these cents and can't seem to stop buying one every now and then.
Mailman just dropped it off this afternoon and I'm really thinking I'm seeing the indicators of it being the obverse of an 1856. Any thoughts? The squarness of the inner part of the 0, the F in of, and rounded bottom post of the M sure do look good.








Oh, by the way – the book I gave you for Christmas has to be returned to the library next week.

The only thing that isn't jumping out at me as the '56 is the 'O'. Yours is pretty rounded on the inner bottom, and is thicker overall then what I would say with 100% certainty. Everything else looks good, but I'm on the fence with the 'O'.

Upon further review, I'm saying, Yes! It's an FS401b. Good eye!

You can see what I was talking about here regarding the shape of the O (additional images match your coin though): http://www.PCGScoinfacts.com/Coin/Detail/410434

I think you're right, but this appears cleaned.

Nice! Now search for the 50c die clash.

I am Omegaraptor, the Seated Liberty Enthusiast. Some of you may recognize me. If anyone needs to know the date on a partial dated 19th Century coin, I am the person to ask.

Great find!

Next, I would look for the $20 Gold clash.
My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now for around 2 years. I love early American coppers. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad (I own most of the coins we sell, and he owns most of the currency), and most of all... I have fun!
Visit my eBay store, I have lots of BINS and auction style listings:

Secret Santa: I collect all old US coins, from Half Cents to Morgan dollars. ;)

With only between 30-60 pcs estimated to exist I don't see that happening.

Thanks - I sometimes have a hard time telling.
