Description & Analysis

With a mintage well under one million pieces, the 1897-O is moderately scarce across all grades. Mint State survivors are elusive, but only gems are truly rare. Most are well struck by New Orleans Mint standards but, like the coin illustrated, will reveal some incomplete areas of the design.

A repunched mintmark variety is known, and repunched dates are rumored but remain unconfirmed. Given the already high prices for this issue, such varieties will carry only a modest premium and attract little interest from collectors.
