    good news is I got it at a great price.. the bad new is International shipping will take a damn month to get it to me if not longer. Now just the quarter and dime to complete the set :D
    Price was low enough that it could be a fake... just high enough for it to be real... we will see in about a month lol....

    I'm by no means an expert in this series. I have watched quite a few of them in sales though as they have always interested me.
    Something seems off to me on the portrait.

    I just googled 1883 Hawaii $1 and this one looks like yours, almost down to the wear. Just missing "COPY" stamped on it.

    $80 makes it a great deal as a grade 10 goes for around the $100 mark, i think this one much higher then that 40-45 to my eye

    I wish you luck. Something about this one makes me a bit skeptical though.

    well will be a bit still before it arrives (international shipping) but as mentioned have dealt with this dealer before so not "expecting" issues but yeah got the magnet and more waiting

    My advice buy Hawaiian coinage that has been third party authenticated

    Looked at the obverse of the "Copy" Coin above, for some reason I can't get the picture to post, but the "A" in AKAHI on the reverse is broken, just like the the one in the OPs picture. Here's the link for those of you who will use it. https://www.aliexpress.com/i/33038960980.html

    okay, sad news.

    Look at the date, now look to the left.

    The numeral 1.

    you can see a die crack from the field to the 1.

    now look at the one stamped 'copy'. identical either die crack or scratch [I think die crack].

    now look at the 3, each has very similar damage [?] to the right side of the 3, mid way down.

    Agree with @Rushmore, I collect these myself and recognised TPG holdered coins only.
