If you're writing an article about an unusual New Orleans mint issue, make sure you add a photo of that coin and not some coin from Philly. Particularly if your pen name is Coin Week IQ. D'oh!

The 1840 shown above is NOT an 1840-(O) medium letters minted in New Orleans. It's a late die state WB-2 "small letters" minted in Philly. Below is a 1840-(O) medium letters. Note the narrow wing tips and extra arrow fletching.
