'1759' Martha Washington Nickel
Judd-2182, MS63

"1759" Martha Washington Five Cent Test Piece, Judd-2182, Pollock-Unlisted, R.8, MS63 NGC. 5.0 gm, identical to the weight of a typical Jefferson nickel. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Unlisted in Pollock, who describes only dime-sized, quarter-sized, and half dollar-sized pieces from similar "nonsense" dies struck in 1965. The alloy of the five cent piece has remained unchanged since 1866, with the exception of the 1942 to 1945 "War nickels." USPatterns.com speculates that Judd-2182 was produced circa 1985 to test the Schuler coin press. Like all known examples of Judd-2182, the initials of Edward Groves are beneath the bust, and the tree touches the A in WASHINGTON. Sharply struck and satiny with faint ice-blue and honey toning. There are no remotely mentionable abrasions.
Ex: Rosemont Central States (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 3171, which realized $3,450.
