Lot Description
The 1861-O half dollar represents the final issue from New Orleans within the design type; the mint was closed in 1861 owing to the Civil War and was not re-opened until 1879, but no half dollars were forthcoming until the 1892-O Barber coinage. Full mint brilliance with a whisper of pale champagne-gold engages both sides, and bold luster completes the picture. Nicely struck and choice for the grade with no major marks present.
