I just finished poking aroung the Heritage web site and came across something interesting... a wallet that was printed with images of obsolete notes from Hawaii. Apparently these notes are extremely rare, as there were no examples of these notes in the Heritage currency auction archives. Here are a few images.

They had a proof of one of the $10 CDs in the archives too. Here's a look at that:

I found this fascinating, and wanted to share it with you and find out whether any of you might have seen any of the issued examples of these notes.

Finally, they had the back proofs for the CDs in a lot that sold last year for over $8000. Here's what that looks like:

Not sure I understand the question. Hawaii became a state in 1959, if that's what you mean.

Incidentally, I just acquired the Christies New York catalog for the sale they held November 28 - 29, 1990 in which they auctioned off 33 lots of Hawaiian republic/kingdom notes/specimens/proofs. I'll compile the information into a census and post the results.

I find it very interesting that they are printed in English.

Thanks for the info, Greg!
