    '1759' Martha Washington Nickel
    Judd-2182, MS64

    1759 (Circa 1985) Martha Washington Five Cent Test Piece, Judd-2182, Pollock-Unlisted, R.7, MS64 NGC. 77.08 gn, virtually equal to the 5.0 gm statutory weight of a Jefferson nickel. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. Unlisted in Pollock, who describes only dime, quarter, and half dollar diameter pieces struck in 1965 from similar Martha Washington dies. The alloy of the five cent piece has remained unchanged since 1866, with the exception of the 1942 to 1945 "war nickels." USPatterns.com speculates that Judd-2182 was produced circa 1985 to test the Schuler coin press. The initials of Edward Groves are beneath the bust, and the tree touches the A in WASHINGTON. An evenly struck and lustrous silver-gray near-Gem with nearly unabraded surfaces.
