Owner Comments:

1849 New Orleans

Mintage: 300,000
Obverse Dies: 3 Known

In problem free EF or better, 1849-O dimes are difficult to locate. Mint State specimens are available but at a significant premium to later New Orleans Mint State dimes from 1850 through 1852. Large O examples are nearly always weakly struck on obverse and reverse. Finding a fully struck Large O dime will be very challenging and could take many years. Small O Varieties 102 and 104 are the most likely to be found well struck. Three obverse dies and two reverse dies were used to produce the 1849 New Orleans coinage.

Plate Coin: Fortin 101b, Large O Reverse With Die Cracks, Incredible Toning Throughout and a Bold Strike for Large O Coinage, Simply One of the Finest 1849-O Examples Seen
