Complete Mint Set of Scarce 1896 Hawaii Officials
Fresh from the Sheet – First Time Offered
Nearly 125 years ago, and before Hawaii was part of the US, these scarce stamps were printed at a quantity of just 10,000 for each denomination. Their purpose was to carry mail for government agencies. Now I'm offering them fresh from the sheet for the first time ever! Each stamp in your set will be from the same position of the sheet it was taken from. (For example, all stamps in position #1 from the six sheets will be in one set together.) Be the proud owner of the complete set of six today.
About Hawaii Official Stamps
The official stamps of Hawaii were printed at a quantity of only 10,000 for each denomination. Their purpose was to carry mail for government agencies. They were also sold to collectors at face value, and the remainder of the stamps not used were sold to a speculative buyer.
