Lot 1189
1847 Hawaiian Cent. Medcalf 2CC-2, Crosslet 4 in date, Berries 7x8. PCGS graded MS-64 Brown PQ. CAC Approved. A lovely brown coin. The holder has scratches however the coin is very nice. An agent acting for the Hawaiian government ordered 100,000 large copper coins, presumably from a New England firm. In 1862, the last known time of issue by the Hawaiian Treasury, 11,595 coins were outstanding (meaning, in circulation). In 1885, according to Medcalf, approximately 88,000 remaining coins in the Treasury were shipped out of the country as scrap and melted. Scarce in this condition. Pop 39; 6 finer in 65 (PCGS # 10965) .
Estimated Value $1,500-UP.

1883 Hawaiian Ten Cents. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. CAC Approved. Lovely golden toning. The obverse displays prooflike surfaces. The Hawaiian government ordered 250,000 Ten Cent pieces in its order with the San Francisco Mint. Since this was the most work-a-day denomination in those days, it saw extensive circulation, with coins in Good to Fine grade predominating. Only a few hundred Mint States remain today, per this PCGS Census enumeration: Pop 40; 35 finer, 21 in 65, 12 in 66, 2 in 67 (PCGS # 10979) .
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.

1883 Hawaiian Quarter Dollar. PCGS graded MS-66 PQ. CAC Approved. Lovely rainbow toning on both sides. Sparkling luster iridescence imbues this satiny toned beauty with a life of its own. Add a high degree of luster and the appeal is virtually irresistible. Strong detail at the reverse shield and on King Kalakauas beard. One year Type. The Kingdom of Hawaii issued silver Dimes, Quarters, Half Dollars, and Silver Dollars. Though dated 1883 (they were struck at the San Francisco Mint), they did not go into circulation until early 1884, where they received a warm welcome. United States regular issues also circulated in the kingdom right up to the time of the overthrow of the government in 1893. Pop 92; 17 finer, 2 in 66+, 14 in 67, 1 in 67+ (PCGS # 10987) .
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.

Lot 1192
1883 Hawaiian Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. CAC Approved. Lovely blue and light golden toning. A great looking coin. A frosted white near Gem that has a substantial advantage over most others in its grade with flashy luster. Circumstances with the bloom off the dies being what it is, sharp-edged devices and lettering throughout add nicely to the coin's merit. There were 700,000 Half Dollars minted, with 612,245 pieces redeemed of which most were presumably melted. Very scarce in this outstanding state of preservation. Pop 59; 20 finer (PCGS # 10991) .
Estimated Value $2,000-UP.
