Description 1794 1C Talbot, Allum & Lee Cent, NEW YORK MS64 Brown NGC. Fuld-4, W-8590, R.1. 162.2 grains. Three varieties of the lettered edge, with NEW YORK 1794 Talbot, Allum & Lee cents are known, differentiated by the size of the ampersand on the reverse, and the position of the ship's mast in relation to the second L in ALLUM. This piece represents one of the two more plentiful, and is often the variant encountered in high grades. Each side displays glossy, beautifully preserved surfaces that seem to glow when tilted beneath a light. The strike is sharp and the eye appeal is exceptional. Only one example has graded numerically finer at NGC (4/14). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $4.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $2,115.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
