Description & Analysis

A large mintage has made the 1841 O dime fairly common in circulated grades, though the same cannot be said for Mint State pieces. There were then no collectors of such coins to preserve them, and only a handful of pieces have survived by mere chance.

Both the Small O and Medium O mintmarks of 1840 were employed for this issue. The former is slightly more common, but the Large O carries no premium.

Of far greater interest to variety collectors is the New Orleans Mint's use of two obsolete reverse dies having the Closed Bud wreath typical of 1837-40 No Drapery dimes. These were paired with the normal Hughes obverse to create very rare transitional mules. One features the Small O mintmark and is slightly the more available of the two, while the other displays the Large O mintmark from 1839-40.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
