NGC (2011-2013) 5c Martha Washington Experimental J-2210 60.5% Nickel, 32.5% Copper, 6.8% Iron

NGC (2011-2013) 5c Martha Washington experimental nickel, struck with the "nonsense" dies on a 5c sized planchet made up of and alloy containing 60.5% Nickel, 32.5% Copper, 6.8% Iron. It is listed as a type of Judd-2210. 

Beginning in 2011, the Mint began experiments for coinage metal change alternatives, and in doing the tests, these "nonsense" dies were used to strike the experimental metals. They are extremely rare, with most designs known, unique or one of perhaps  known. 

The dies are fantastical in nature, with the lettering all mixed up, and totally without meaning. The date is a combination of letters and numbers as well. Martha Washington is portrayed on the obverse side, but interestingly, on the reverse it appears to be a combination of both Monticello and Mt.Vernon! The lower portion of the building matches the exact design of Mt.Vernon, but the home has a round dome like that of Monticello. Apparently, the coin designer was intending to create a truly "nonsense" die.

This is a unique experimental. It was waffle cancelled, as are all known (outside the Mint) Martha "nonsense" coins. An opportunity for the collector of rare experimentals, Martha coins, or simply one who appreciates rare and interesting coins. 

Ungraded due to having been waffle cancelled, but the coin has proof surfaces, and has an iron/nickel color to its surfaces. It is "uncirculated."
