Description & Analysis

Circulated examples of this issue are slightly scarce, while Mint State pieces are very scarce. Gems are extremely rare, as the Census data indicate. Some coins are well struck, but the majority will have some areas of weakness.

1841 O half dimes are known with either the Small O or Medium O (photos) mintmark, but there is no significant difference in rarity.
