Obverse Dies: 10 Known
As with 1854 Philadelphia, on 1854 New Orleans coinage the date and arrows were placed on the master hub dimes resulting in a consistent placement of these devices on the obverse die. Variations in the strength of the date hubbing of the working dies produced strong and weak dates.
Plate Coin: Fortin 105, Die Crack Through 8 Digit In The Date, Very Well Struck With Even Luster Throughout, Light Gold/Brown Toning On Reverse
