    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)

Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
