    1880 Half Real, AU55
    Wailuku Plantation
    Token

    1880 TOKEN Wailuku Plantation Half Real AU55 PCGS. In addition to the 1847-dated cent, and the 1883-dated silver coins struck in San Francisco, several 19th century Hawaiian merchants issued tokens that served in commerce. Among the issuers were Thomas Waterhouse, Thomas Hobron, the Kahului Railroad, the Grove Ranch Plantation, the Haiku Plantation, and the Wailuku Plantation, an important sugar producing plantation on the island of Maui.

    While the Wailuku Plantation one real tokens are among the most plentiful 19th century Hawaiian tokens, the half real pieces are extremely rare. The present piece is the finest of just seven that PCGS has certified (3/17), while they have certified 17 of the one real tokens. This lovely example has smooth olive-brown surfaces with faint blue overtones and evidence of mint luster. Listed on page 421 of the 2017 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2UBP, PCGS# 600509)
