    1883 Hawaii Half, MS65
    Few Certified Any Finer

    1883 50C Hawaii Half Dollar MS65 PCGS. Struck at the San Francisco Mint on a Federal half dollar planchet, this Hawaii half dollar (also known as the Hapalua) is amazingly toned and thoroughly appealing. The portrait of King David Kalakaua radiates silver luster with golden highlights, surrounded by reddish-gold overtones and ocean-blue margins. The reverse displays lustrous, pearl-gray surfaces with aqua accents. An impressive Gem, housed in a earlier-generation, green-label holder. Population: 14 in 65 (1 in 65+), 2 finer (2/14).
    From the Collection of Donald E. Bently, sold for the benefit of the Bently Foundation.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2C5B, PCGS# 10991)
