Original $750 No Stars Design Type, Repunched Date, Steely Silver Surfaces, Peripheral Gold, Eroded Dies, Top 100 Varieties #3. 1838 New Orleans strikes are always popular as a No Stars type coin with a bit more challenge than 1837 Philadelphia counterparts. This original example offers steely silver surfaces with some peripheral gold. This piece was struck from the F-101 die pairing (repunched mintmark) and qualifies for the Top 100 Varieties set. Surfaces are essentially unabraded and pleasing. A late die state strike as both the obverse and reverse dies have considerable metal flow lines into the denticles. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
