This 1¢ stamp was issued to cover the inland postage rate on printed material.  It was designed by Thomas G. Thrum, a publisher and stamp collector, who lived in Honolulu.  First issued in mauve (this stamp was printed in violet), it is easily mistaken for a faded stamp, because the stamps were such a pale shade when they were originally printed.  The princess, a sister to Kamehameha IV and V, was supposed to succeed to the throne but died before Kamehameha V left it.  

Why some Hawaii stamps were
created just for stamp collectors...

There was a great demand for Hawaii stamps from collectors in the United States.  Hawaii’s connection to the U.S. was quite strong, and it was evident to many people that Hawaii would eventually become a U.S. state.  This made the stamps popular in the U.S.  But the small number of Hawaii stamps issued for postal purposes could not possibly supply demand.  Postal authorities created “official imitations” and reproductions, thereby collecting a sizable profit on stamps that would never frank mail.
