    Exemplary Superb 1883 Hawaii Hapaha

    1883 25C Hawaii Quarter MS67 PCGS. ATTENTION BIDDERS: THE IMAGES FOR THIS LOT, #1563, A 1883 PCGS MS67 HAWAIIAN QUARTER DOLLAR, ARE THE ACTUAL IMAGES OF THE COIN BEING SOLD. UNFORTUNATELY, THE IMAGES IN THE PUBLISHED AUCTION CATALOG FOR LOTS #1563 & #1561 HAVE INADVERTANLY BEEN SWITCHED. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL RON BRACKEMYRE AT 972-814-4859. THANK YOU. Pale cherry-red peripheries cede to faintly toned centers. This exquisitely struck Superb Gem has an essentially pristine reverse, and the obverse is virtually as smooth since only the cheekbone and right obverse field show insignificant grazes. HAWAII and the King's mustache exhibit minute die doubling. The mintage of 500,000 pieces appears generous, but much of the production was melted after Hawaii became a U.S. Territory. The hapaha denomination has survived in Uncirculated grades in greater quantity than either the hapalua or akahai dala, but Superb Gems are undeniably rare. Population: 9 in 67, 0 finer (2/07). (NGC ID# 2C58, PCGS# 10987)
