Sale Number 1009, Lot Number 696, Provisional Government Issues (Scott 53-61)1893, 5c Ultramarine, Category II Double Red Ovpt. (59e), 1893, 5c Ultramarine, Category II Double Red Ovpt. (59e)1893, 5c Ultramarine, Category II Double Red Ovpt. (59e). Well-centered, tied by nearly complete "Honolulu, H.I. Nov. 14, 1895" duplex on small piece

VERY FINE. A RARE SOUND AND WELL-CENTERED USED EXAMPLE OF THE CATEGORY II DOUBLE RED OVERPRINT ON THE 1893 5-CENT ULTRAMARINE PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT ISSUE.

The Category I double overprint on the 5c Ultramarine does not exist in used condition, so this Category II error is the closest one can come to a used double overprint, and this is probably the closest thing to a cover that exists.
