1847 Hawaiian Cent. . Medcalf-Russell 2CC-2. Crosslet 4, 15 berries 7 + 8. PCGS graded MS-64 Red & Brown CAC Approved. In a new secure plus holder. Pop 19; 2 finer, 1 in 64+, 1 in 65. About 20% mint red visible. Boldly struck. AUPUNI HAWAII (Kingdom of Hawaii). The denomination carries a misprint, since there is no "R" in the 12-letter Hawaiian alphabet, the engraver should have used the letter "L" as HANELI. Hapa Haneli would mean roughly translated, Half Hundred or the fraction 1/100. There are five varieties of number and arrangement of berries in the wreath of the cent, and two different obverses of King Kamehameha III (PCGS # 10966) .
Estimated Value $2,200 - 2,400.
The Forsythe Collection.


 
Realized $5,520
