1851 New Orleans

Mintage: 400,000
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

A single die pair was employed to strike 1851 New Orleans coinage, though the obverse die appears to be polished down during its production life. In EF through AU grades, this date becomes very scarce. Only
a few example are known in Mint State. The obverse on all examples has weak drapery details between Liberty's body and right arm. This area has been polished down to a smooth appearance on the obverse die.
