    1883 Hawaii Dollar, PR62+ Cameo
    Very Rare in Proof Format
    Remarkably Attractive

    1883 $1 Hawaii Dollar PR62+ Cameo NGC. CAC. Ex: Forsythe Collection. The business-strike silver issues of the Kingdom of Hawaii dated 1883, the dime, quarter, half dollar, and silver dollar, are frequent visitors at Heritage -- the dime and quarter far more so than the larger-denomination pieces -- but proof examples of all of these issues are remarkably rare. The proof mintages of the silver dime through silver dollar are given as 26 pieces each, and perhaps one-half to two-thirds of those survive today. The present consignment, offered in this Platinum Night session, contains examples of the pattern proof-only one-eighth dollar (mintage 20 pieces) along with a proof quarter, proof half dollar, and two examples of the proof silver dollar -- the current piece, certified PR62+ Cameo by NGC, and a PR63 Cameo PCGS example. Even though the fields show a few hairlines on each side, this piece is a stunning coin nonetheless, showing perceptible field-device contrast and a razor-sharp strike. Light suggestions of champagne-gold deepen slightly at the rims to copper and amber hues. A gorgeous example of this rare crown-sized issue. PCGS has seen eight examples of this issue in all grades and contrast levels, while NGC shows 10. Census: 1 in 62+ Cameo, 1 finer (65 Cameo) (3/14). (Variety PCGS# 415929, Base PCGS# 10997)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
