About This Set: For a lifelong Louisiana resident and coin collector, this set seems like a no brainer...right? I remember when several boxes of treasure coins were unearthed during the Hotel Meridien renovation on Canal Street in 1982. As a child, I got one as a gift, and my collecting interest became as tenacious as Louisiana swamp mud. The history that surrounds the coins struck at the New Orleans Branch Mint is remarkable and I'll include pearls that are interesting. Completing this set will be a difficult task on many levels as some issues simply haven't withstood the test of time...not to mention the financial undertaking this will require. The typical New Orleans issue is usually found poorly struck, heavily circulated, and on average not as eye-appealing as an S-mint Morgan. It'll take a lifetime to complete, but who's in a hurry.
