Except there was a problem…

RHM database and MR book indicates that the coin is serial numbered from 1 to 78. This coin is not serial numbered.

According to RHM database, the mintage for this coin is 43 !

M&R indicates a mintage of 66!

The rarity of the coin was incorrectly stated in the ad….( I would use the direct source (RHM database) as the more accurate mintage (43 without serialized number).

 

 

 

 

 

Still Here – Completed a Discovery Model Project

I created several US Numismatic Discovery Models. Several of these models can be adapted for Hawaiiana numismatics.

Discovery Model D is a prime example. The Hawaiian Numismatic Knowledge Domain is basically centered around the MR 2nd edition book. If a Hawaiian issue is not located in this book, its a numismatic discovery if its documented.

Here at the model write-ups:
