    1759-Dated (1999) Martha Washington Dollar in Copper-Zinc
    Judd-2185a, MS65
    Experimental Rim for the Sight Impaired

    1759 (1999) $1 Martha Washington Dollar, Judd-2185a, Pollock-Unlisted, MS65 NGC. The Martha Washington design was used to test clad coinage alloys during the mid-1960s. It was revived in 1999 to test "golden" alloys for the upcoming Sacagawea dollar. The present butter-gold specimen is notable for its six recessed areas or notches on both rims, intended to allow a blind person to identify the denomination. Struck in a predominantly copper-zinc alloy with a plain edge. The well struck and satiny surfaces show only a few scattered and incidental obverse marks.

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
