Lot 2199 Hawaii

  • Scott12
Description

Hawaii, 1859, 1¢ light blue on bluish white. Plate 2-A, type III (position 1), neat red square grid cancel of Honolulu, beautiful bright vivid color, uncommonly large margins all around, an Extremely Fine gem, ex-Caspary, with 2017 P.F. certificate. Scott No. 12; $15,000. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE HAWAIIAN NUMERAL. THE EXCEEDINGLY CHOICE QUALITY OF THIS STAMP CAN NOT BE OVERSTATED. EXAMPLES OF THIS STAMP CANCELLED SOLELY IN RED ARE EXCEEDINGLY RARE AND VERY DESIRABLE. THIS IS THOUGHT TO BE THE FINEST KNOWN EXAMPLE. Sound examples of the 1859 Numeral Issue printed in blue are exceedingly rare, due to the delicate nature of the thin paper. The stamp offered here, with wide margins, fresh color and in completely sound condition, is a true condition rarity.
