This 1896-O New Orleans issue from “the Rare Decade” is a really tough find in mint-state quality, and regularly retails for four figures. While easily affordable in our clearly detailed Very Fine quality, it’s still relatively scarce. A silver dollar encyclopedia estimates that perhaps 160,000 may exist in VF condition or higher grades. The Philadelphia 1896 Morgan issue is far more available, yet costs about the same.
