    One of Two Known Hawaii 1895 Silver Certificates

    Hawaii Republic of Hawaii $10 Silver Certificate of Deposit 1895 (1897) Pick 12a
    The last update to the census of Republic of Hawaii Silver Certificates showed just one uncancelled 1895 $10 known. That example, a PCGS Fine 12, was offered in our Memphis Auction in 2010 and sold for $17,250. That piece was the serial number recorded in the Medcalf and Russell tome with this, the only other piece reported.

    It is highly uncommon for two of the only known examples of a given rarity to appear at auction just a few years apart. Devotees of Hawaiian numismatics are studious and passionate and we would not be surprised if both pieces are ensconced for a decade or more making this offering a serious event for specialists. Full margins frame the evenly circulated example. The back design features the seal of the Republic of Hawaii and the printed details are still bold overall. PMG Choice Fine 15.
