1892-O. NGC graded MS-61. Well struck and lustrous. Only 28,688 minted of which only 1,250 are estimated to have survived. The lone surviving Southern branch mint after Charlotte "C" and Dahlonega "D" closed in the Civil War is the famous New Orleans "O" facility. Upon it reopening in 1879, this mint in Louisiana continued to strike gold eagles until 1906. Dates in the 1890s, representative of this 1892, had much lower mintage on average than at the sister mints of Philadelphia and San Francisco. New Orleans finally ceased business in 1909 (PCGS # 8723) .
Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,100.

Realized $1,265
