Morgan Silver Dollars and New Orleans. The New Orleans Mint had struck silver dollars in a few different years before the beginning of the Civil War, but had not minted any of the large coins since the war ended.This would be the first year of production of these large silver coins in New Orleans since the beginning of the Reconstruction. The number of silver dollar coins minted in New Orleans would grow from the first year of mintage throughout the entire following decade, making this first-year issue a little tougher to find than the New Orleans minted Morgan silver dollars of the 1880s. Why so long with no New Orleans silver dollars? New Orleans is in the Deep South, which means it was in territory claimed by the Confederate States in the Civil War. Their last production year of silver dollars prior to the 1879-O Morgan Silver Dollars was in 1860 - just before the Civil War. During the Civil War the Confederates took control of the New Orleans Mint to make coins for their new country, but had no need (or metal) for silver dollar production. The Mint State 65 grade.
