304 ogbl ImageHAWAII, 1893, 10c Red Brown, Red Overprint Error (61B). Block of four with full AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY. NEW YORK” imprint selvage at right, Positions 24-25/29-30, original gum, top right and bottom left stamps h.r., bottom right stamp Mint N.H. and with trivial natural inclusion

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THIS IS THE UNIQUE IMPRINT BLOCK OF THE 1893 10-CENT RED PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OVERPRINT ERROR. ONE OF THE GREATEST SHOWPIECES OF HAWAIIAN PHILATELY.

Two errors of the 1893 Provisional Government Overprint Issues were made. One sheet of the 10c Red Brown, normally overprinted in black, was overprinted in red (Scott 61B, offered here). One sheet of the 6c Green, normally overprinted in red, was overprinted in black (Scott 66C, offered in the following lot). According to an affidavit by Louis T. Kenake, clerk of the Stamp Division of the Republic of Hawaii, the 10c sheet was issued to the postmaster at Kahuka, Oahu (Meyer-Harris, p. 240). The 6c sheet was purchased by Postmaster Jos. M. Oat and sometime around 1901 most of it was sold to dealer J. H. Makins, probably on behalf of Henry J. Crocker. The San Francisco earthquake is said to have destroyed eight examples of the 10c.

Ex Atherton, Honolulu Advertiser and Gross. With 1995 P.F. certificate. Scott value is $65,000.00 as a block, but $70,000.00 as four singles with Mint N.H. premium for one (Image)

305 ogbl ImageHAWAII, 1893, 6c Green, Black Overprint Error (66C). Block of four with OKA” of Hawaiian imprint in left selvage, Positions 11-12/16-17, large part original gum, h.r., selvage with slip affixed with embossed seal and note, Genuine, Jos. M. Oat., P.M. Genl.”, few perf separations between top left stamp and others (not mentioned on accompanying certificate)

VERY FINE. ONE OF TWO RECORDED BLOCKS OF FOUR OF THE 1893 6-CENT PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OVERPRINT ERROR. THIS IS THE ONLY MULTIPLE WITH IMPRINT SELVAGE OR THE POSTMASTER’S ATTESTATION.

Two errors of the 1893 Provisional Government Overprint Issues were made. One sheet of the 10c Red Brown, normally overprinted in black, was overprinted in red (Scott 61B, offered in the previous lot). One sheet of the 6c Green, normally overprinted in red, was overprinted in black (Scott 66C, offered here). According to an affidavit by Louis T. Kenake, clerk of the Stamp Division of the Republic of Hawaii, the 10c sheet was issued to the postmaster at Kahuka, Oahu (Meyer-Harris, p. 240). The 6c sheet was purchased by Postmaster Jos. M. Oat and sometime around 1901 most of it was sold to dealer J. H. Makins, probably on behalf of Henry J. Crocker. Six are reported used. The San Francisco earthquake is said to have destroyed a number of examples of both the overprint errors.

Our survey of major Hawaiian collections and auction sales produced only two blocks of this error: the ex-Tows, Ishikawa and Golden block, and this block with part imprint. Another interesting statistic is we have offered only one single with selvage (from the top, narrow selvage).

Ex Atherton, Honolulu Advertiser and Gross. With 1995 P.F. certificate. Scott value $65,000.00 as a block (Image)
