What we appreciate the most are coins like these that are truly Collector Coins...
Take advantage of this hard to find New Orleans coin and remember that MS coins run into the tens of thousands...
Beginning in 1840, the United States Mint struck Silver Dollars for commercial use in large quantities for the fist time since the early 19th century. That year also marks the beginning of the Seated Dollar series, a type whose basic design closely resembles that of the 1836-1839 Gobrecht Dollar series. The Seated Dollar, however, displays several minor differences in the obverse portrait, these being attributed to the Philadelphia artist Robert Ball Hughes. The reverse of the Seated Dollar is markedly different than that of the Gobrecht Dollar, the former coin adopting the traditional spread-wing eagle with shield in conformity with the Seated Quarter and Seated Half Dollar. From 1840 through 1865, the Seated Dollar did not include the motto IN GOD WE TRUST as part of the reverse design.
