Sorry it's not being rude. The pictures are bad, they are blurry. The last 2 you can't tell it's a flying Eagle.

Considering that the 1856 is a rare coin, only better pictures will give anyone enough information to even venture a guess as to the date.

I think I can make out the second 8 (as in 1858), but much clearer images are still needed.

The 1856 cents were mostly distributed to dignitaries. Few made it into circulation and not many are known below the grade of Fine. They were being pulled actively from circulation by 1870s. The odds of this corroded example being a genuine 1856 are virtually nil.
