HAWAII. 1851, 5c blue Missionary (2). P.F. Certificate State "that it is Genuine, Repaired & Used". It is our opinion, however, that this is an Unused Repaired Copy as we can find no evidence of a cancellation & feel it would be impossible to remove the usual heavy grid cancel or red town pmk., without leaving traces on this fragile pelure paper, very fine appearance, Cat. Used $4000.00, Unused $9000.00
