    '1759' Martha Washington 'Cent'
    Judd-2180, MS62 Red and Brown

    "1759" (1982) Martha Washington "Cent," Judd-2180, P-4100, R.7, MS62 Red and Brown NGC. Designated as P-2080 on the NGC insert, but the 1994 Pollock reference reserves that number for a double-headed aluminum half dollar. The present piece was struck with a plain edge in copper-plated zinc. Predominantly orange-red with powder-blue on the lower portrait and a spot on the right obverse field. The Martha Washington design was first used circa-1965 to test the new clad composition for dimes and quarters, and the 40% silver composition for half dollars. The all-purpose designs have since been used on other denominations as well, presumably when their turn came for new alloys.
