Hawaii. 1884 Royal Hawaiian Agricultural Society Silver Medal. Uncirculated. Engraved on the reverse: "Premium for the Best Exhibited Imported Jersey Bull H. R. Macfarlane". 64 mm, 133.2 g, plain edge. Two big edge bumps. Beautiful toning on both sides, and the obverse bears semi-reflective surface. Housed in the original wooden box as issued.
This medal was also issued to Mr. H. R. Macfarlane. He won the medal for best imported Jersey cow in 1883, encouraged by the success, he imported a bull for breed the same year, and that made him win this medal for the best imported bull in 1884. This medal, even with damage but still nice and unique, will make a perfect pair with the previous one we're offering.
Estimated Value $4,000 - 5,000.
