Hawaii the 49th State !



Not a typo...

Today (August 21, 2015) is the anniversary of Hawaii Admission Day or Statehood Day. Hawaii is actually the 50th State.

However, So-called dollar HK-722a claims Hawaii is the 49th State (sorry Alaska). See image.

Most HK-722a are holded to obliterate this "49" design error (overzealous designer, manufacturer, and issuer).

The image is an intact specimen I purchased last month.

It's my submittal candidate for HK-722a top pop. NGC population is a mere 3 specimens with a top pop grade of MS 63.

Even the major reference book So-Called Dollars by Harold E. Hibler and Charles V. Kappen has a holed specimen as a plate medal.
