Significant examples:

PCGS Proof-64 Brown.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 899, where it was described as follows: "1795 Talbot, Allum & Lee Cent, Standard Edge, PCGS graded Proof-64 Brown.  A spectacular, golden brown example with choice autumn leaves color and all of the details as classified for a Proof specimen by Breen, including razor sharp details and full cartwheel iridescent luster. The surfaces are exceptional, mirrored and completely unlike the surfaces seen on business strikes. A coin with tremendous eye appeal and one which is sure to elicit strong competition. Excessively rare in this condition! The only other piece we've offered since 1995 was PCGS Proof-63 Brown that realized $3,738.65 as Lot 800 in our February 1999 sale. This one should be worth considerably more." - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001, Lot 1448

Recent appearances:
PCGS MS-64 Brown.  Ex - Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles, Inc.'s "Pre-Long Beach Sale", September 23 & 24, 2002, Lot 86, illustrated.

PCGS MS-62 Brown.  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, October 14, 2000, Lot 1025, where it was described as follows: "Medium to dark brown in color, with all of the original mint red having converted years ago. When turned under a light source, the surfaces offer up a nice brilliance that can be called semi-Prooflike. These coins were used as storecards (advertising tokens) by Talbot, Allum & Lee for at least two years, but we know that in 1795 a quantity of these coppers was purchased by the U.S. Mint, rolled and punched out, then used as planchets for Half Cents! What a great tie-in between a so-called Colonial coin and U.S.-issued copper money!"
