    Satiny Gem 1883 Hawaii Dime

    1883 10C Hawaii Ten Cents MS65 PCGS. This crisply defined Gem displays thick, satiny luster under a bit of speckled russet and crimson toning, along with a few flashes of turquoise iridescence at the obverse periphery. The only disturbances worthy of mention are a teardrop blemish down from King Kalakaua's eye and a trio of paper-thin marks at the back of the neck. Precious few Gems survive of this lowest-denomination 1883 issue, struck for the kingdom through the connections of sugar baron Claus Spreckels. Population: 19 in 65, 11 finer (8/10). (NGC ID# 2C54, PCGS# 10979)
