1883 Hawaiian Ten Cents. PCGS graded Proof 62 PQ. Old green holder. Nicely toned on both sides. Only 26 struck in Proof. A naturally toned yet still gleaming specimen whose reflective luster seems poised to enhance the overall sharpness seen in the main devices. We note a touch of faint champagne toning touched with golden-rose, moste noticeable on the reverse. Keenly struck with Proof dies -- with full details aplenty on both sides. Call it a winner! Pop 2; 5 in 63; 1 in 65; 1 in 66. (PCGS # 10981) .

According to the main Medcalf reference (a "must have" book for any numismatic library) "Six silver proof sets without the eighth dollar were struck in September, 1883. A year later 20 sets with the eighth dollar (5 coin set) were struck in proof." This accounts for the split mintage of 26 pieces each for the dime, quarter, half dollar, and silver dollar and the 20 pieces struck of the eighth dollar.
Estimated Value $6,000 - 8,000.
From the 9/09 Hawaii Collection.

Realized $10,063
