I won this auction a few weeks ago. The items that caught my eye was the 1884 date and the Hawaiian Treasury logo.
This items is actually a Hawaiian Treasury deposit receipt that provides evidence that the Finance Department received $24.00.
The name was at first puzzling, but after a few minutes with the actual specimen it made sense. The receipt is made out to a Hawaiian Government official. The receipt is made out to District Judge Lihue (for fines & costs).
The District Judge Lihue was appointed in the position in June 1884 based on a quick library search.
A very interesting specimen that traces back to the Hawaiian Treasury in the Kingdom of Hawaii.
