Interesting Presentation from the Bailey House Museum

I was reviewing images taken at the Bailey House Museum (Edward Bailey is the maternal great great greatĀ great great grandfather of my son). Crude image, but it discusses the dies used to create the coat of arms on the Kalakaua royal stationary. I’m familiar with the center figure 2. as I own several stationary specimens with this design.

From this documented research by John Tanaka, you can surmise that King Kalakaua must have also been disappointed with the results on his one dala coin.
