An online auction house (not eBay) was selling an 1984 gold Hawaii coin in BU condition.
Provided information and images were not very helpful. However my snooping identified it as a gold IKI.
I’ve been watching this coin since February 5th.
I did some moderate visual investigation. I determined it was 13 mm based on the cardboard flip size.
I saw the words IKI and STATEHOOD on the reverse.
I placed my absentee bid days in advance.
I watch the online bidding today. Within a minute my absentee bid won !
The coin is likely to be a BU 1984 Kalakaua Gold Statehood IKI in 18 KT with a mintage of 218. This purchase was based on the visual inspection of blowup poor quality pictures….
