Obverse Dies: 1 Known
A single 1852 obverse die is paired with two Large O reverse dies for New Orleans coinage. The two reverse dies are easy to distinguish. The first has a Large O mintmark that is well centered and high with no tilt. Examples for the second reverse die are much more difficult to locate. It has a Large O mint mark that is positioned right and tilts sharply left. 1852-O dimes are rare in Mint State grade.
Plate Coin: Fortin 102, Impressive Strike with Rose and Violet Toning Throughout
