    i looked on completed listing and there are none similar to yours. the rare ones a few and far between. the common junk is junk! very similar to tokens.

    please let us know here if you put them on.

    not a problem, i sure understand that. a museum tops a collector even in my book.
    i was just offering the idea. personally i don't collect dog tags.

    your dog tags evidently are a great find. it would be nice if you contacted bill bone and let him list the tags 'for the record'. if he has seen pictures he still needs measurements. new finds should be listed, regardless of their destination, so all the researchers, collectors and others to be able to view.

    your's are quite unique. 1800's, with a picture, and i imagine being from hawaii is a plus too.

    congratulations on the find, the id and what you're doing with them.

    thanks for the chance to see them on t net!

    i did send him pics of some of them but no measurements i guess i should contact him and see what he needs to document them and i will give him the numbers off all of them thanks for bringing that to my attention so i can do the right thing

    when i see others doing 'the right thing' it affects me in a positive way.
    here's a story: a person passed away and the wife talks about how generous he was publicly, donating, volunteering, fund raising, tipping...etc. and especially about how appreciative he was of her-all their life together. wow!, it really meant something to me, somehow it has made me grow!

    hope this isn't off track. i guess learning, through life from others, shouldn't stop because of age!

    just thought i would tell everyone that i tried to give all the tags that i found to the Hawaii historical society and they apparently don't want them so i tried the bishop museum on Oahu and the same thing there so go figure you would think they would want these but i guess not so now they will stay in my token box i did try

    Well, you tried. On a related topic, after all the emailing and searching I did on this, I found an example of one on the front page of a dog tag collectors site called "The Bark". Check it out-http://www.thebark.com/content/colle...tique-dog-tags. Anyway your finding some good stuff out there, always good to see your finds. Good luck or Maika'I pomaika' and happy hunting.

    Re: 1876 to 1885 hawaiian tags??? solved there dog tags

    that's crazy they didn't want them. did you hear 'no' from one person? was it the primary person? surely there is an entity that is interested in securing the islands past-even the ordinary day-to-day items. not everybody wants to see a hundred thousand dollar picture. some people care about the past on a more realistic level.

    i'm just thinking there may be another person or group interested in the 'ordinary' things of hawaii's past. is it possible the 'no' was from a sector of the museum that is only 'high faluting' wanting only the high dollar - high visbility items? there's just got to be a group interested in the 'day to day' items of their past....maybe not in the two you tried. there may be a smaller 'community based' group that is saving the islands past. there just has to be a place for such antiquities.

    don't give up your quest!!!! they really are museum quality and i would think rare!!!! find that place where they can be enjoyed by the common man. you kow what do you look at when you go to a museum? do you look at the huge painting of 'who kows what', the dinasaur bones? what i'm getting at, and probably going on too much but, is that bigger name museums may not be the direction for the simple items of the past.

    PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP!!!!!

    yeah, private doesn't sound good

    maybe a library, school, community or civic center, is there a college or some historical society.

    i just think museums not wanting the 'real life history stuff of the island is a shame.

    around here there is a kids museum that has a lot of old every day items.

    don't give up~!

    Aloha mai Peeps,

    We found an 1870 Hawaiian Dog Tag (#141) in an abandoned house site in an old Hawaiian Village in South Kona, Hawaii Island, Hawaii a couple of years ago and are trying to find out who the registered owner might be and/or more about this unique find. If you have any information that may help us in our quest it would sincerely be appreciated. Email: haynsunshine247@hotmail.com

    Godspeed and happy hunting!!!

    Respectfully Yours,

    Simbralynn Kanaka'ole
