Description & Analysis

Despite its very small mintage, there are a reasonable number of Mint State survivors. These have come mostly from the buried hoard discovered during construction that took place in New Orleans during 1982. The coins from that source were mishandled in many instances, so gems remains extremely rare.

Most examples feature the Small O mintmark that continued on into 1841, the Large O variety being rare. That die was used previously for the 1840-O No Drapery issue.
