1884 Kingdom of Hawaii Treasury

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.
