Mint N.HHAWAII, 1893, 10c Red Brown, Red Overprint Error (61B). Mint N.H. with part bottom imprint selvage, radiant color, well-centered for this difficult issue

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE FINEST OF ONLY TWO MINT NEVER-HINGED SINGLES OF THE 1893 10-CENT RED OVERPRINT ERROR WE HAVE OFFERED SINCE KEEPING COMPUTERIZED RECORDS. 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.

Ex Ostheimer, Tows and Honolulu Advertiser as a strip of five. Raymond Weill purple backstamp on selvage. With copy of 1996 P.F. certificate for strip of five with selvage on three sides. This is one of two Mint N.H. stamps in the strip (position 2 was also Mint N.H.). They are the only two we have been able to locate.
