Up for auction in August 2016
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.

I’ve seen a few of these previously specimens sold at auction. These are not listed in Medcalf & Russell (see page 20, 2BN-1 through 2BN-7). I have 2BN-1 through 2BN-7 in my collection.
Once in a while a few numismatic items appear as part of the auction…
Nice rarities. Also a future auction for a coin that was on ebay.
Only four Hawaii related coins up for auction…No bids as of this posting.
