Obverse Dies: 10 Known
For 1841 New Orleans coinage, a total of ten different obverse dies and twelve reverses dies have been identified with multiple die pairings. The most significant varieties for 1841 New Orleans coinage are the Large O and Small O transitional Closed Bud reverses. Both Closed Bud reverse dies were left over reverse dies from 1840 and were paired with the same 1841 obverse die for production in early 1841 before additional reverse dies arrived from the mother mint in Philadelphia.
