    1882 Haiku Plantation Token, MS62 Brown
    Attractive Tropical Design, Medcalf TE-15

    1882 TOKEN Haiku Plantation One Rial Token, Reeded Edge, MS62 Brown NGC. Medcalf TE-15. Most 19th century Hawaiian tokens are crudely produced, often by local blacksmiths. But the Maui Haiku sugar cane plantation tokens were struck by a private San Francisco coiner, and have an attractive aesthetic appearance that transcends the other varieties in the Guide Book token series. The denomination is one rial, a phonetic spelling of the Spanish-American real, equal to 12 and a half cents. This crisply struck walnut-brown example has minimally marked surfaces and a hint of aqua patina in design crevices. Census: 2 in 62 Brown, 5 finer (6/20).
