Description

Splendid 1882 Haiku Rial, MS64 Brown

1882 Haiku Rial MS64 Brown NGC. Medcalf TE-15. Haiku is located about 15 miles east of Wailuku, and was the site of the Haiku Sugar Company, chartered in 1879. The Haiku Plantation tokens are considered "the most artistic and well struck of the early metal tokens," according to Medcalf, who further notes "unconfirmed information ... that these were minted in San Francisco and one order was for 800 of the tokens."
If they were minted in San Francisco, dies would have come either from Hawaii, or from Philadelphia, as the San Francisco Mint had no die shop at the time. The report seems unlikely, though certainly possible.
This sensational token has glossy chocolate-brown surfaces with full luster and sharp design details. It easily ranks among the finest examples we have seen. (NGC ID# 2UBZ, PCGS# 600518)

HA is a traditional auction house, they set up their auctions slightly different from typical domain auctions. This works well, it seems to be a good mix of old age (live bidding in a prestigious hotel) and new age (online bidding).
