The "Late Letter, Mail" circular handstamp was known used July 2nd 1882 to October 1st 1884. The marking reflects payment of an extra fee for processing a late letter. Starting in mid-1882, letters brought to the Honolulu Post Office after the posted closing time for a mail shipment were charged an additional 5¢ fee to have their letters included in the mail. The fee was charged more to discourage the practice of bringing in late letters than for revenue.
