1928 Hawaiian Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-65. CAC Approved PQ. Nice golden toning around the edges. Housed in an Old Green Holder.Lustrous golden gray which has grand overall eye appeal, the surface enlivened by typical satin-like luster. The above-average strike on Captain Cooks bust and wig complements this eye-appeal and, some might say, adds immeasurably to the appearance. A Gem. Pop 475; 81 finer (PCGS # 9309) .

Only 10,008 1928 "Captain Cook" Half Dollars (as collectors from our fiftieth state prefer to call them) were coined; of these, the majority found a home in change purses or curiosity boxes, they being, for the most part, sold to non-collectors and mainland tourists in the islands. Once in the public's hands many got abraded and worn. To this day, well-toned About Uncirculated specimens turn up regularly at coin stores in Honolulu. Having that in mind you have before you one of the few premier Mint State 65 examples left.
Estimated Value $3,400 - 3,700.

Realized $4,600
