Owner's Comments

Mintage: 150,000
Obverse Dies: 1 Known

A single die pair was employed for 1843 New Orleans coinage. A very scarce date to obtain in problem free VF or better grade with well struck and original 1843-O examples in EF or better proving to be rare. The 1843-O is a key date in AU or better and is extremely rare in Mint State grade.

The reverse die will show progressive die cracks at the 2nd T in STATES and the M in AMERICA to rim. Die rust is evident within the central portion of the wreath leaves and around the bow knot. 1843-O dimes have a Medium O mintmark which is positioned left and high.
