1859 1c Hawaiian stamp reaches $15,500

An 1859 1c light blue “1 Ce” omitted was among the lead lots in Robert A Siegel’s sale of the Keith J Starmer collection of Hawaiian Numeral Issues.

Hawaii blue 1c

The error is missing the '1 ce' printing at the bottom

It made $15,500 in the June 28 auction in New York.

This stamp is one of only two examples of this rare error in existence.

Hawaiian stamps are particularly prized by collectors, as the islands’ remoteness meant they were produced in very small numbers.  

We have an extraordinary range of postage stamps for sale, including a number from the South Pacific.
