|Title||1928 50C Hawaiian, MS|
|Service Catalog #||9309|
1928 50C Hawaiian -- Obverse Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Hawaiian commemorative half dollars were struck in June 1928. The mintage of 10,008 coins included eight assay pieces and 50 sandblast proofs. Coins went on sale in early October of that year, with a sellout following soon-after. The issue's popularity endures, mainly because of its ultra-low mintage. This piece maintains the sharpness of an Uncirculated coin, but an inoffensive obverse cleaning prevents a numeric assessment. Just a few small bag marks are seen, and each side showcases pale golden-brown tones. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
