Kingdom of Hawaii 1883 Dala (Dollar) , PCGS XF-45, Original

685.00

An attractive original example of the largest denomination struck for the Kingdom of Hawaii. This still retains a considerable amount of luster on the Reverse, with some nice blue-gray toning. Designed by Charles Barber, this series was struck at the San Francisco Mint, on planchets of the U. S. standard. Original and unmolested, which has become scarce, as most that were put aside by residents were saved as souvenirs and suffered from the Island climate. This series lost its legal tender status after the "liberation" of the Islands by forces working for Spreckles Sugar, with the result that most Halves & Dollars were repatriated to the U. S. for melting and recoinage into U. S. coins. The total PCGS Population in EF-40 and better is a slim 690-odd coins (97 in BU grades) as of June, 2017, out of a mintage of 1/2 Million. If this was a U. S. Federal issue with similar mintage & survivorship, the price would be considerably higher. Should easily CAC based upon others I have seen that are NOT as nice.
