Mintage: 4,540,000
Obverse Dies: 26 Known

1891 New Orleans dimes have an uncommon occurrence of die cracks and severe die breakage while strike quality is consistently strong. No other date in the Seated Dime series shows a similar level of repeated die degradation and breakage. Excessive coining press striking pressure is suspected to be the cause of many spectacular shattered dies within this date.
