The basic New Orleans set consists of a nice group of silver and gold coins from the mid 19th century through the early 20th century. Of course, the toughest coins in the set will be the gold issues, with the Double Eagle being the most difficult. The $3 (1854 only) and the Indian $5 (1909 only) will also prove tough, especially in high grade. One of the set's highlights must certainly be the 1839-O Capped Bust Half with the nice large mintmark shown above the date on the obverse.
