Description & Analysis

The New Orleans Mint produced a string of five low-mintage rarities in the 1879-O through 1883-O eagles. But the 1879-O, produced to the extent of 1,500 coins, and the 1883-O, with its spectacularly low emission of only 800 pieces, are by far the most recognizable of the quintet, and the 1880-O through 1882-O are only recognized as the rarities that they are in Mint State by knowledgeable specialists.
