Numismatic Detective -- Official Hawaii Statehood Medal Revisited



Do you own the lowest serial number NIIHAU correction medal?

Recently, I acquired another Official Hawaiian Statehood medal in sterling silver (submitted for NGC grading and encapsulation earlier in November 2012). This specimen is serial number 1309.

In a previous journal entry I presented original research that concludes that serial number 1266 is currently the known "discovery" medal that corrected the the NII HAU spelling error (space inserted between the letter I and H) to NIIHAU (single word). This newly acquired medal exhibits the same traits as the serial number 1266 medal.

My hunt continues for the lowest serial number that corrects the NII HAU spelling error. If you have an Official Hawaii Statehood medal in sterling silver that is lower than serial number 1266 and exhibits the correct spelling of NIIHAU, please contact me. You may hold the new "discovery" specimen for the correction of NIIHAU spelling error, will help in resolving the final population count and help document this new finding in Hawaiian numismatics.
