Lot 2904
"1759" Martha Washington $1 Golden Dollar Test Token, Judd-2185, Low R.7, MS66 NGC. 8.2 gm. The 1759-dated obverse has a portrait of Martha Washington facing right, while the reverse shows a view of Mount Vernon. This design, which omits a denomination and the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, have been used by the Mint to test coinage alloys since 1965. Struck in magnesium brass-coated copper-clad metal with a plain edge. The consistent green-gold color is similar to that of the Sacagawea dollar, which succeeded the Anthony dollar in 2000. An intricately struck Premium Gem with vibrant satin luster and a virtually immaculate reverse. The obverse has only a few minuscule ticks. Only one other example of this pattern has previously appeared in a Heritage auction, as lot 11257 in our November 2003 New York Signature. ANR auctioned an MS63 example in December 2003 for $20,700, and another ANR example went unsold in June 2004.
Ex: Heritage, (8/2007), lot 2194, which realized $9,775.
From The Liberty Collection, Part Three.

Important notice: Heritage usually auctions material at the rate of 200-250 lots per hour. On some occasions eBay Live bid software or the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid disappointment. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an eBay Live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the eBay live bidding (usually because we missed an audience bid), and may reject your bid even if it shows you as the winning bidder. By bidding via eBay Live, you agree that Heritage may award the lot to another bidder at its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since eBay bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like floor bids. In most cases the floor responds before the eBay bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie eBay live bids. Also please note that all Heritage lots purchased through eBay Live carry a 20% Buyer's Premium with a $9 minimum Buyer's Premium. Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Heritage Auctions. All final auction and invoice information will be supplied by Heritage Auctions, and all other information should be considered preliminary. Lot:2904

Second Chance Offers: Heritage does not make Second Chance Offers. Once our auction ends, if you receive a Second Chance Offer to buy this item DO NOT accept the offer. Please forward any Second Chance offer emails received on one of our auctions to eBay's Safe Harbor Department.
