ONE OF FOUR KNOWN EXAMPLES OF THE 1910 $5 REVENUE ISSUE WITH DENOMINATION INVERTED. A GREAT HAWAIIAN RARITY.
The $5 center inverted revenue issue of Hawaii has only 4 known examples - the Advertiser pair and two singles that where tied on piece. This example was originally tied on piece with other example (which bears a light crease) and was soaked off the piece and split into singles. This is the first time an inverted center single is being offered to the public.
