FINE AND RARE BISECT OF THE 1864 2-CENT KAMEHAMEHA IV ISSUE USED ON COVER WITH THE 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA V ISSUE.

In July 1870 the 6c single-letter rate to the United States was established. The 6c stamps were not available until late Spring 1871, and so the rate was made up using three 2c stamps. As the supply of 2c stamps dwindled, the post office permitted some 2c bisects to be used with 5c stamps for the 6c rate.

Ex Golden. With 1937 letter of authenticity from Bertram W.H. Poole

Mint N.H. block of four with bottom selvage, additional "9c" printed in selvage

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE MINT NEVER-HINGED BLOCK OF FOUR WITH ADDITIONAL SURCHARGE IN THE SELVAGE.

This error came about due to an 8.5mm downward shift in the overprinting of a single sheet, thus reversing the order of the lines of the surcharge. This bottom selvage block beautifully demonstrates this error.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate. Scott Retail as singles.
