Description & Analysis

The Talbot, Allum & Lee cents are unusual among the post-Colonial pieces of British origin in that they actually circulated in the United States to a fairly wide extent. More than 200,000 of these cents are believed to have been struck as advertising tokens, most dated 1794, but a sizeable number dated 1795. The majority of these were unused and the firm ultimately sold 2,990 pounds of them (an estimated 140,000 to 150,000 tokens) to the U.S. Mint for use as half cent planchets.
