    1847 Hawaii Cent, MS64 Brown
    Medcalf 2CC-2, Glossy and Needle-Sharp

    1847 1C Hawaii Cent MS64 Brown NGC. CAC. M. 2CC-2. Crosslet 4, 15 berries, 7x8. The most commonly seen variety among 1847 Hawaiian cents, which were commissioned by King Kamehameha III and struck by a Massachusetts firm. The legend was bungled, however, and no additional coins were manufactured. This glossy reddish-brown near-Gem displays a needle-sharp strike on each side. Void of singular mentionable marks. Census: 21 in 64 (1 in 64+) Brown, 1 finer. CAC: 18 in 64, 0 finer (1/18). (NGC ID# 2C52, PCGS# 10965)
