Update: Official Hawaii Statehood Medal in Silver NII HAU to NIIHAU Transition Serial Number

A NGC collector/contact provided me with images of the error transition from error NII HAU to correction NIIHAU. Previously 1266 and 1267 was identified at the notional transition point until another lower serial number (with correction) could be identified/verified.

(With drum roll in the background..)

The newly assigned and verified transition serial number is 1043 and 1044!!!!

An anonymous collector actually own both medals.

This is a major Hawaiian numismatic find!

Roughly 35% of the 3,000 struck are error. To put it into a better perspective, a little over 1/3 of the medals are the NII HAU error type.

I traced the serial number and there were previously purchased at a major auction without the fact being made that these were the transition medals….
