    (1860) Hawaii Waterhouse Token -- Rim Damage -- PCGS Genuine Secure. VF Details. Medcalf 2TE-1. Honolulu merchant John T. Waterhouse issued the earliest known Hawaiian tokens. Struck in soft pewter, the Waterhouse token is "virtually impossible to find above EF condition," per Medcalf. The present slate-gray example has lumpy rims but is no more than typically abraded for the variety. Listed on page 410 of the 2014 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2UBK, PCGS# 600500)
