This coin is listed on one of the national auction websites. I cannot believe that this coin was graded UNC details! It is probably at best VF details.

I agree. This is most likely a misprint on the label.

I don't know anything about Hawaiian dollars but I would think there should be more detail on hair, beard ,& mustache .
I'll go with VF also.

Concur this is mis-graded ... likely a label printing error.

The seller, a well known retailer, is selling it as graded and asking $699. Have to question their grading ability

Buy the coin and not the slab. Sleazy profit-blinded capitalists.

I fear the slab may be tampered with, but more likely, it may just be a label misprint.

Cert pulls up as a 10995/1883 Hawaii $1, non-SC holder, flagged GENUINE, UNC, and DETAILS code 98 (damage/NOS)

My money's on what PCGS euphemistically calls a "Data Entry Error." It's not covered by the GGA (Guarantee Resub) refund program.

I wonder if and how a buyback would work with a details coin if somebody wanted to go that route with this guy?

You are correct with
"at best VF details".

I suspect a fake slab.

Until the coin is taken out of the slab, it cannot be investigated properly. Because of this, there remains the possibility that the coin may also be fake.

PCGS is starting to stand for People Can't Grade ........Seriously. that. Hawaiin piece is a total joke. I am firmly convinced that PCGS is motivated only by the fantastic revenues they continue to generate.

That looks like tape residue outside the corners if the coin, not haze from cracking the slab. See how uniform the pattern areas are. And personally I don't see anything suspect with the label color or font but I am halfeye tired right now

PCGS graded some of my large cents VF details that are solid AU details this week. They were previously in PCGS AU details holders and I was seeing if they could come back as straight grades, instead they gave me VF details!! Not even close. Maybe they messed this coin up for one of mine? LOL

There are quite a few misprinted labels, it happens more than you'd expect. Another good reason to buy the coin and not the slab.

That is most certainly not an uncirculated coin. A shame that some individuals opt to profit off obvious errors rather than do right by all parties involved.

I wonder if it's one of the new slabs, one of those that literally falls apart in your hands?

(I recently got a coin back from them and it was sealed tight as a drum. But not all of their recent coins/new slabs have been!)
