Lot Description
1928 50C Hawaiian MS67 NGC. This is one of only four Superb Gem examples of the 1928 Hawaiian half known to NGC, only one of which was awarded the Star designation (1/11). Between the low original mintage and the high proportion of the issue which was parceled out to non-numismatists, it is a wonder in some ways that an MS67 survivor of this issue should exist at all. Yet this immensely lustrous example, smooth silver under a prominent blush of peach and orange patina, can scarcely be called anything else. It is one of the most eye-appealing lightly toned Hawaiians the collector will ever encounter.
