Owner's Comments

Mintage: 480,000
Obverse Dies: 3 Known

A fairly common date in the With Stars series, however 1859 New Orleans dimes become very scarce in EF or better. The Medium and Large O mintmarks are equally available with a slight edge to the Medium O in difficulty. This date is available in Mint State with some searching.

Plate Coin: Fortin 105, Large O, Light Gold Toning, Well Struck
