143.5 grains. This rarest of all in the Talbot, Allum & Lee series is the Ultra-Rare 1794 major listed type Without "NEW YORK" in the upper reverse field as seen on virtually all others which come to market. This very clean and pleasing example is natural brown with some slightly deeper highlights. This coin is very even in its circulation while the devices are fairly bold for its conservative grade. It has pleasing eye appeal and nice surfaces, the date numerals are clear, the centering is perfect on the reverse. This specimen is from the Ted L. Craige Collection with his original paper envelope with coin attribution notation included. In fact, Ted Craige's envelope notes and records this type as "RRR" (Rare Rare Rare), his highest rarity designation. A highly important major Colonial Coinage Rarity that is seldom offered and will command serious collector attention.
