    1759 (1985) Martha Washington Five Cent
    Judd-2182, Schuler Press Test Piece, MS65

    1759 (Circa 1985) Martha Washington Five Cent Test Piece, Judd-2182, Pollock-Unlisted, R.7, MS65 NGC. 77.52 grains. Very close to the 5.0 gm (77.15 grain) statutory weight of a Jefferson nickel. Unlisted in Pollock, who describes only dime, quarter, and half dollar diameter pieces struck in 1965 from similar Martha Washington dies. Struck in nickel with a plain edge. The alloy of the five cent piece has remained unchanged since 1866, with the exception of the 1942 to 1945 "war nickels." 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. The surfaces are satiny and softly struck on Martha's hair, but problem-free overall.
