AN ATTRACTIVE UNUSED-APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE RARE HAWAIIAN 1851 5-CENT MISSIONARY.

Our census of Hawaii No. 2, published in Part 1 of the Honolulu Advertiser catalogue, is available at our website at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/HI2/HI2.pdf . This stamp was listed as 2-I-CAN-28 in the census published in our Honolulu Advertiser sale, but we incorrectly assigned another stamp (Sale 1075, lot 1232) to that census number on our website census. This is definitely the stamp from the Tows sale (lot 240), and our online census has been corrected. Of the 40 used off-cover examples we record of the 5c Missionary, more than half are repaired to some degree.

Siegel Census No. 2-I-CAN-28. Ex Tows (lot 240). With 1948 P.F. certificate issued to Raymond H. Weill, describing the stamp as "used, horizontal crease at bottom". The Scott Catalogue notes that "values are for examples with minor damage that has been skillfully repaired."

The William H. Gross Collection: Hawaii
 
Sale Number 1126, Lot Number 7, 1851 Missionary Issue Stamps and Covers (Scott 2-4)1851, 5c Blue (2), 1851, 5c Blue (2)1851, 5c Blue (2). Crocker Type I -- the lefthand position in the setting of two -- three large margins, touched along frameline at left but the line is intact, tied by clear strike of red “Honolulu * Hawaiian- Islands * Jul. 12” (1854) circular datestamp on front only from Charles H. Wetmore to William R. Gay in Lebanon, Connecticut, clear strikes of “San Francisco Cal. 16 Aug.” circular datestamp with “SHIP” and “12” handstamps (10c U.S. collect rate plus 2c ship captain’s fee), the stamp has been lifted and backed with protective tissue for preservation purposes, there is a sealed tear at right and a couple of tiny flaws, but no paper addition or repainting, the front itself has the right edge extended slightly and skillful cosmetic restoration, the overall appearance is quite beautiful

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY 5-CENT HAWAIIAN MISSIONARY STAMP TIED BY THE HONOLULU DATESTAMP AMONG THE TEN RECORDED COVERS OR, IN THIS CASE, COVER FRONT.

Ten 5c Missionary covers (including this front) are recorded in our census and the Gregory census. Included in this total are the Dawson 2c/5c cover and the 5c cover acquired by the Smithsonian National Postal Museum in the Honolulu Advertiser sale, leaving eight 5c covers for collectors. The front offered here is the only one on which the stamp is tied by the Honolulu datestamp. In this case, it is the “Honolulu * Hawaiian Islands *” version, since the United States postage was not prepaid.

This cover was carried on the schooner Restless, which cleared Honolulu on July 13, 1854, and arrived in San Francisco on August 9. The San Francisco datestamp was applied on the same day it was carried by the Pacific Mail Steamship Company’s Oregon, departing on August 16 and arriving at Panama City around August 30. The mail was carried across the isthmus to Aspinwall, and from there it left on the U.S. Mail Steamship Company’s Empire City, departing September 2 and arriving in New York on September 12. The recipient, William R. Gay of Lebanon, Connecticut, paid the 12c United States postage, which included 10c for the unpaid transcontinental rate and 2c for the ship captain’s fee.

Although there is no content or docketing, this was sent by Dr. Charles H. Wetmore. The recipient was a member of the Wetmore family, and the writing precisely matches the writing on the letter offered in lot 7 in this sale (in particular, the “U.S.A.” with underscoring).

John K. Bash recorded this Missionary as owned at one time by Frank J. Dutcher (1850-1930). Dutcher, a wealthy member of the Hopedale Community in Massachusetts, was the first president of the Draper Corporation, which later became a division of the Rockwell Corporation. Little has been written about Dutcher’s stamp-collecting activity, but he was a collector of substantial means in the 1890s and a member of the Collectors Club of New York. The Millbury postmaster’s provisional cover we sold in our sale of the Frelinghuysen collection (Sale 1020, lot 15) was also owned by Dutcher.

The item passed from Dutcher to Caspary, possibly through an interim owner. The careful preservation measures were probably done during or possibly before Caspary’s ownership. Its appearance has not changed since the 1957 Caspary sale catalogue was published. In the 1963 Burrus sale catalogue, it was described as “picturesque,” a perfect adjective to describe its colorful character.

Ex Dutcher, Caspary, Burrus, Middendorf, Ishikawa and Pietsch. Also stated to be ex Krug in past sale catalogues, but Krug’s Hawaii was sold privately and we have no way to confirm that provenance. Siegel Census No. 2-I-COV-68. Illustrated in Gregory book (page 397). With 1963 (copy) and 2016 P.F. certificates

Crocker Type I -- the lefthand position in the setting of two -- ample margins to barely touching, vivid red "Honolulu U.S. Postage Paid Au(g) 1(?)" circular datestamp with "U.S. Pos" showing clearly, boldly struck, two small tears and small repairs

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED 1851 5-CENT HAWAIIAN MISSIONARY WITH THE "U.S. POSTAGE PAID" CIRCULAR DATESTAMP OF HONOLULU.

The few 5c Missionaries with the Honolulu datestamp present are, in all but this case, cancelled by the "Honolulu Hawaiian-Islands" datestamp, which was used when only the 5c Hawaiian postage was paid and United States postage was collected from the addressee. This example is extraordinary and must have been used in conjunction with other stamps to pay the 2c ship captain's fee and U.S. postage (either 6c or 10c). It is the only 5c, on or off cover, with the Honolulu "U.S. Postage Paid" datestamp used as a cancel. The famous 2c and 5c Missionary cover, last offered in our 2013 sale of the Steven C. Walske collection (Sale 1045, lot 11), also bears this marking.
