    1759-Dated (1999) Martha Washington Dollar, MS64
    Judd-2185, Manganese Alloy

    1759 (1999) $1 Martha Washington Dollar, Judd-2185, Pollock-Unlisted, Low R.7, MS64 NGC. The 1759-dated obverse has a portrait of Martha Washington facing right, while the reverse shows a view of Mount Vernon. This design, which omits a denomination and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, has been used by the Mint to test candidate coinage alloys since 1965. The present piece was likely struck in 1999, when the Sacagawea dollar was planned with a "golden" color to distinguish the denomination from a quarter. A sticker accompanies the piece identifying the composition as 73% copper / 24% zinc / 2% nickel / 1% manganese. Plain edge. The brassy-gold surfaces are sharply struck and semiprooflike. The obverse has traces of an old print, the reverse is clean.
