1795 1C Talbot, Allum, & Lee Cent, Breen-1036, W-8620, R.1, MS63 Brown NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A lovely piece with smooth surfaces and a very pleasing reddish-brown patina that has led many writers over the years to refer to examples like this as bronzed proofs. Close examination under magnification shows some small areas of planchet roughness and die adjustments, but these are as struck. Charles I. Bushnell, writing in 1858, identified the source of these tokens as Birmingham. Listed on page 78 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
