area 0.0.1.23 nssa no-summary     <---- is configuring totaly nssa and it will advertise default route into area (if default route it is present in ABR's routing table)
default-information originate         <--- should advertise default route into area (if ABR does not have default route in its routing table)

So it looks like redundant
Default Summary Route


By defining an area as a NSSA totally stub area, the NSSA ABR generates a default summary route. As mentioned, if the NSSA area were not defined as totally stub, then a default summary route is not generated by NSSA ABR. This configuration generates a default summary route for a NSSA totally stub area.

    router ospf 1
     Area 1 nssa no-summary
However it will be two type of LSAs. The first default route will be type 3 LSA and the second one will be type 7 LSA. Type 3 is preferred, but type 7 will be created even if ABR does not have default route in it's routing table.
