    Description

    1883 Hawaii Half Dollar MS 63 PCGS. Semi-prooflike on the obverse, satiny on the reverse, a lightly toned specimen. An interesting coinage for 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. (NGC ID# 2C5B, PCGS# 10991)
