These genuine 1901-O dollars are legacies of the short-lived New Orleans Mint. Opened in 1838, this branch mint struck U.S. coins until January 1861, when the State of Louisiana seceded from the Union and took over the facility. Two months later, it was taken over again by the Confederacy – its third “master” within weeks.
