AN ATTRACTIVE EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 13¢ HAWAIIAN POSTAGE MISSIONARY ISSUE.

The Missionary stamps were designed and printed by Henry Whitney at the Government Printing House on a small press used for business cards. A form of two subjects was made from available type and printed on fragile pelure paper, meaning the far majority of Missionary stamps are repaired to some degree. This stamp offered here was issued on October 1, 1851 to pay the 13¢ combined U.S. and Hawaiian postage for a single letter bound for an Eastern American destination.

A EXTREMELY RARE USED EXAMPLE OF THE 1857 5¢ ON 13¢ PROVISIONAL BEARING THE JACKSON MANUSCRIPT SURCHARGE.

There was a shortage of 5¢ stamp just after the transition from Postmaster Whitney to Jackson around the start of 1857. This necessitated the 5¢ provisional manuscript surcharge, with most being made by Jackson's clerk, Alvah Clark (Type I) having a numeral with a long flag, and the rest by Jackson (type II) having a numeral with short flag with only four examples recorded. New supplies of the 5¢ 1857 Issue (Scott 8) on thin white wove paper were received at the end of June 1857.
