In January 2019, an attack on Ethereum Classic resulted in the theft of about 219,500 ETC, worth approximately $1.1 million at the time.

In August 2020, an attack led to the theft of about 807,260 ETC, worth approximately $5.6 million at the time.

In January 2021, the last 51% attack on Ethereum Classic resulted in the theft of about 7,000 ETC, worth around $9 million at the time.

It's possible that some of the stolen ETC from the 51% attack on Ethereum Classic was sold on various cryptocurrency exchanges, but it's hard to say exactly if they were sold or not.
