Tied by Lihue double-circle datestamp on small piece, bright color, light vertical pre-use crease

FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF ONLY SIX RECORDED USED EXAMPLES OF THE 1893 6-CENT BLACK OVERPRINT ERROR. AN EXCEPTIONAL HAWAIIAN PHILATELIC RARITY.

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.

Of the six known used copies, two were used from Lihue and four were used from Kahului (one on cover).

Ex Aall. With 1936 R.P.S. certificate
