PCGS (2011-2012) 25c Quarter Martha Washington experimental, with the coin one that was part of a series of metal tests done in order to look into different metals for U.S. coinage. There are a number of different metals they tested, but this one is comprised of a metal alloy that is (approximately) 75% Copper, 25% Nickel, 0.2% Manganese.
 
The dies used to strike this are "nonsense" dies, with the words all backwards, or a jumble of letters. The obverse portrays an image of Martha Washington, while the reverse has a most unusual scence of a Rhino looking towards a mountain range!  It is listed as J-2210
 
The Martha quarter features the serial number on the design which is "00579A" on the reverse and "0012" on the obverse. There are only a total of 2 known with this exact serial number and metal.
 
All known examples of these 2011-2013 Martha Washington experimentals are waffle-cancelled, and only 2 of this particular metal and size are known to us (including this example.)
