Description 1794 1C Talbot/Stork MS64 Brown NGC. Liverpool Edge, Breen-1043, W-8670, R.4. In the late 18th century, the Birmingham coiners of Talbot, Allum & Lee cents paired the obverse coinage dies with several irrelevant reverses, creating a number of scarce to rare mules to market to Conder token collectors. This particular piece is among the more plentiful mules, exhibiting the 1794-dated Fuld-3 obverse paired with a 1793-dated reverse depicting a standing stork and the legend PROMISSORY HALFPENNY. Examples are known with two different edge inscriptions, the LIVERPOOL edge variety being the more plentiful. This piece displays medium orange-brown patina with tinges of copper-red in the recesses. The strike is sharp, with well-preserved surfaces. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $3,055.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
