Sale 1083, Lot 1100, 1893 Provisional OverprintsHAWAII, 1893, 10c Red Brown, Red Overprint Error (61B). Original gum, h.r., bright color

FRESH AND FINE. A RARE SOUND ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE 1893 10-CENT RED OVERPRINT ERROR. ONLY ONE SHEET OF FIFTY WAS ISSUED.

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). One sheet of the 6c Green, normally overprinted in red, was overprinted in black (Scott 66C). 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 a number of examples of both the overprint errors.

Dealer's backstamp. Signed Bloch. With 1968 and 2013 P.F. certificates.
