    Description

    1883 50C Hawaii Half Dollar MS62 PCGS. CAC. The planchets for the Hawaii half dollars (the Hapa Lua) were regular U.S. silver half dollar planchets, employed by the San Francisco Mint in 1883 to strike 87,755 pieces, which was nearly nine times the mintage of our domestic half dollars struck in Philadelphia for the year. This Hawaiian half shows a bit of pale gold toning on the neck of King Kalakaua I that extends to the date area, but the coin is otherwise brilliant on both sides with nice mint luster. A few small marks determine the grade. CAC endorsed, one of six such coins to receive the honor at MS62. (NGC ID# 2C5B, PCGS# 10991)
