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.
