Unscrewed Royal Hawaiian Mint Sets

I wrote about this topic in a previous blog. It’s once again happening by multiple sellers. This observed trend that replicates third party crack-out of slabs. It’s the unscrewing of the original plastic holders of the Royal Hawaiian Mint issues and selling each coin individually.

Currently, there are King Kamehameha and Princess Kaiulani coins from these “unscrewed” sets being sold at a popular online auction website. This may seem affordable for the low budget collectors, as pieces are now below complete set. However, the individual prices are steep and the purchaser will eventually feel the monetary wrath and be royally screwed by the unscrewed Royal Hawaiian Mint sets.

RHM Issue?

This coin maybe a RHM private issue. Close-up inspection is required. It should arrive in a few days. The RHM initials can be seen on the bottom center.


2nd Place Showing

I spent a few days at the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatics Spring Coin Show. I had a six case exhibit and came in second place. Not bad for my second exhibit ever. Below is case 1.
