Flash forward a few years from the previous New Orleans Mint photos and we find ourselves at 400 Esplanade St. New Orleans, LA in the year 1963.  This is just a couple of years before ownership of the mint was transferred to the state of Louisiana.  I love the tail fins of the American automobile in all their glory.  Check out other Coinologist archive photo posts here.
