Description & Analysis

Half eagle coinage resumed at the New Orleans mint in 1892 after a 35-year hiatus. The 1892-1894 issues are significant as they are the only With Motto half eagles from this mint. The 1892-O is easily the scarcest of the three. Only 10,000 pieces were struck and around 125-150 exist today. This date is usually seen in Extremely Fine and About Uncirculated grades and is characterized by extensively abraded fields. Two dozen or so pieces exist in Mint State with nearly all of these in the MS 60 to 61 grade range.
