Description1883 50C Hawaii Half Dollar MS62 NGC. An interesting coin from the island of Hawaii, issued only in this year by King Kalakaua I. Struck by the United States mint at San Francisco. Originally 700,000 half dollars were struck, but 612,245 were recalled and melted, thus making this a scarce issue. While several surface marks account for the grade, they are not distracting as the prooflike nature of the fields dominates the eye.
