    Martha Washington Dollar, MS65
    Judd-2185 Non-Manganese Variant
    Two N's in Obverse Field

    1759 (1999) $1 Martha Washington Dollar, "N" and "N", Judd-2185 Variety, Pollock-Unlisted, Low R.7, MS65 NGC. The Martha Washington design, previously used to test clad coinage circa 1965, was revived in 1999 to test "golden" alloys for the pending Sacagawea dollar. Lot 1451 from our May 2009 Long Beach Signature describes the proposed "N" alloy as 77% copper, 20% zinc, and 3% nickel. The letter N was crudely entered into the left and right field of the obverse die, to identify pieces struck in that specific non-manganese alloy. The present Gem exhibits rich peach color, deeper than seen on the typical Martha Washington pattern dollar. Crisply struck, lustrous, and well preserved.
