Description:
Rare "1759" Martha Washington "Quarter" MS63
(1759) 50C Martha Washington "Quarter", Judd-2116, Pollock-2082, Low R.7, MS63 NGC. 5.73 grams. The obverse has a portrait of Martha Washington facing right, while the reverse shows a view of Mount Vernon. Struck in cupronickel-copper (multi-layer composite). Struck from the so-called "nonsense dies" without a specified denomination. Dime-sized and half dollar-size pieces were also produced. USPatterns.com states: "It is believed to be the first metallurgical trials [circa 1965] using the current cupro-nickel clad planchets. The Martha Washington obverse was designed by Edward R. Grove and the reverse is by Philip Fowler." Grove's initials are beneath Washington's shoulder. A satiny and lightly toned piece with minor striking softness in the centers. A radial obverse die crack at 8 o'clock and an apparent clash mark at 7 o'clock on the reverse should be of interest to the pattern specialist. (PCGS# 62298)
