We found David Ginsberg's comments concerning the New Orleans Mint in the last E-Sylum quite interesting, for we have the answers to most of his questions. He discovered some information concerning the 1883 O Eagle, and we just recently submitted an article for publication in Coin World on that same coin.
The 1883 is quite an interesting coin, with its miniscule mintage of just 800 pieces, and from all the resources we have researched there has been little, if any, information to support its low production. We decided to delve into it, and came up with some interesting facts, as well as some theory because the records are scant in the National Archives.
Anyway, we are hoping that the article will be published and this new information can be shared by all.
