The first New Orleans Mint Half Dime, the 1838-O is also the only mintmarked issue of the No Stars Seated type. Variegated dove-gray and steel-gray patina to both sides, the surfaces uncommonly smooth for having acquired 20 points of wear. A bold-looking EF that is sure to appeal to many collectors.
