Scott No. R17a; $40,000.

A CHOICE SOUND EXAMPLE OF THE EXTREMELY RARE 3¢ PLAYING CARD IMPERFORATE ISSUE.

Scott No. 32; Estimate $2,000 - 3,000.

AN EXTREMELY RARE AND UNUSUAL HAWAIIAN AND UNITED STATES MIXED FRANKING.

This cover is from the Fifth Sub-Period of the Late Treaty Period. As a double-rate cover, the 5¢ Hawaiian postage correctly prepays two-times the 5¢ rate, but the U.S. postage was underpaid at 8¢. The sender perhaps thought the rate was only two-times the 3¢ letter rate plus the 2¢ ship fee.

Half-way houses on the road from Hilo to Volcano House were located here. In 1899-1900, an unofficial postal agency was operated here by J. W. Mason, the Olaa postmaster.
