Description & Analysis

Although produced in substantial numbers, its mintage exceeding 10 million pieces, the vast majority of 1886-O Morgans were either placed in circulation or fell victim to Pittman Act meltings. Consequently, this once-overlooked New Orleans issue is now more accurately regarded as one of the more difficult O-mints in the series at the Uncirculated level.
