    Elegantly Engraved Hawaiian Island $100 Silver Certificate Remainder

    Hawaii Kingdom of Hawaii $100 ND (1879) Pick 4b Remainder.
    Our consignor acquired this wonderful piece from a Newman auction featuring a set of proofs, $10 through the $100. It was described, "The final illustrious member of this fine-tuned Hawaiian Islands remainder set. Exceedingly rare in any form with two sets of proofs known to us (one with a stained face) and some backs left over from the 1990 ABN Archive lots. We do not know of an issued note or full two-sided Specimen. The serial number 8800 reportedly exists, ex: Ostheimer and also on the perforated "PAID" note in the 9/09 Collection sale (lot 1583). The serial number on this example is 8799, confirming the 8800 number authorized and known from the order sheet from the ABN archive book. The face design is memorable and combines stellar elements from the ABN repertoire. At the center is a globe showing the Americas. At the left is a steamer heading west and a train heading east, with palm trees behind; these form a cartouche around the center. At the lower left is a frightened, galloping horse and at the right, a placid cow. The ends have the Hawaiian textual denomination. The blue tint on the face is across the signature blocks and the top counters are deeper blue. The back is also deeper blue, and uses the common series design of Royal Hawaiian Arms at the center, with ornate lathe work and denomination counters flanking. Hole Punch Cancelled as prepared at the ABN for archiving as a Specimen note. This is one of the most eye-catching notes in the sale. Blue tints are not often seen on earlier American Obsolete or Federal type notes. This 'world' note crossover is about as American a banknote design as one could desire." All of the denominations crushed our estimate ranges, which is very likely again here today. PCGS Choice About New 58.
