    '1884' Hawaii Half Dollar, MS63 Uncertified
    Gould-Bressett-83, Overstrike

    "1884" Kingdom of Hawaii Half Dollar Overstrike MS63 Uncertified. Gould-Bressett 83. 30.5 mm. 15.6 grams. More than 20 percent heavier than the standard weight of 12.5 grams for half dollars. Die rust on the portrait of Kalakaua and elsewhere. Struck over a coin or medal of larger size and weight, with faint outlines of the host item detected under magnification. This piece was sold with another similar piece in 2005 that was overstruck on a Columbian Expo half dollar. Probably of similar origin, and at that time it was speculated that both originated from King Farouk's massive holdings. Rich gray and blue toning covers most of each side with bright traces of original silver around the devices.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2005), lot 10786, where it realized $2,990.
