Hawaii the 49th State Error Medal

This is an update about the So-Called Dollar HK-722 Series HK-722, (HK-722A, and HK-722B).  They are also listed in M&R as 2M-390, 2M-391 and 2M-392. The given descriptive name is Souvenir of Hawaii,  Statue of King Kamehameha. Collectors do get confused with the Souvenir of Honolulu version (HK-723 or  2M-393).

How rare is the 49th State Error?

Image below is a  HK-722B in my collection. It took some time to locate one. This HK-722B has undergone conservation as it suffered from bronze  disease. It’s still a hard medal to locate.
