Owner Comments:

1839 New Orleans

Mintage: 1,323,000
Obverse Dies: 5 Known

A total of five different obverse dies and six reverse dies have been identified for 1839 New Orleans coinage.

1839-O dimes with a Small O mintmark are extremely rare in mint state. The plate coin was puchased at the Heritage pre ANA auction for an amount well above price guide values and is most likely the finest Small O 1839-O dime extant.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101, Small O, The Strike is Needle-Sharp, Every Aspect of Libertys Head, Stars, and all the Obverse Devices are Crisp and Pronounced. On the Reverse, Every Leaf, Letter, and Berry is Bold. Both Obverse and Reverse are Toned a Sunset-Gold at the Periphery, Lighter at the Centers.
