    '1759' Martha Washington Half Dollar
    MS67, Judd-2132

    (1965) 50C Martha Washington Half Dollar, Judd-2132, Pollock-2083, Low R.7, MS67 NGC. 171.72 gn. From the well-known "nonsense dies" used by the U.S. Mint to test new coinage compositions since 1965. The obverse features a bust right of Martha Washington, the first First Lady, and the date 1759 below, the year of her marriage to George. The reverse presents a view of Mount Vernon. This piece is struck in the same cupronickel-copper composition used to strike the 1965 clad dimes and quarter, although halves bearing that date were 40% silver. Medium olive-gold toning visits lustrous and pristine surfaces. A few letters lack a full strike, but the devices are bold. Both fields are clashed.

    Coin Index Numbers: (Variety PCGS# 619622, Base PCGS# 511836)
