VERY FINE. A RARE AND DESIRABLE BLOCK OF FOUR OF THE 8-CENT ON 50-CENT CANAL ZONE NO. 15 WITH THE TOP LEFT STAMP SHOWING "PANAMA" READING BOTH DOWN AND UP.

According to Canal Zone Stamps, this variety comes from Positions 1 and 51. Either eight or ten were printed. Eight are known. We have only offered one other since keeping computerized records (ex Plass and Drucker) which was a single. The example offered here, in a block, is a wonderful exhibition piece.

1230° c ImageCANAL ZONE, 1904, 8c on 50c Bister Brown (15). Used with 1c on 20c Violet (16), tied by "Tabernilla Apr. 24, 1906" duplex cancels on Canal Zone Commission corner card cover with "Official Business" crossed out, addressed to Surgeon J. C. Perry at Ancon, receiving backstamp of the following day

VERY FINE. ONE OF ONLY TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE 8-CENT ON 50-CENT SURCHARGE USED ON COVER. A PHENOMENAL RARITY.

According to the book Canal Zone Stamps only 500 of Scott No. 15 were issued, making it one of the rarest Canal Zone stamps. Of these, only seven used copies are recorded. At the time of the book's publication (1986) only one cover bearing this issue was recorded. That cover (ex Plass) bears two 2c stamps (No. 11) and was also used to Ancon on the same day as the example offered here, though to a different recipient. The description of the other cover in the 1993 Plass sale noted the existence of this second cover, narrowing down its discovery date.

The Sovereign departed Honolulu on April 23, 1854, and arrived in San Francisco on May 6. In San Francisco this was handed over to G. B. Post, who put it into the mails on the next available ship.

EXTREMELY FINE. A SUPERB TIED EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III 1861 THIRD PRINTING ON BLUISH PAPER. A GORGEOUS COVER.

Gregory reports 50 covers with the 5c Third Printing (Scott 9), but only 15 are covers with this stamp used alone (not in combination with United States stamps). This cover was carried on the American bark Yankee, which departed Honolulu on July 7, 1864, and arrived San Francisco on July 29.

Letters from Hawaii to San Francisco showing the 1863 rates are discussed in the Gregory book (Volume II, pages 165-169). The San Francisco post office inconsistently applied the 4c and 6c collect rates. Six examples are recorded by Gregory.
