I am intrigued by Hawaiian postal history. I am at least 7th generation in Hawaii. I was doing research on my Great Great Great Grandfather Rudolph Wilhelm (RW)Meyer when I found the postmark envelope for American Sugar Company which he began. He was also the postmaster in Kaunakakai from R. W. Meyer (1868-1897). My interests are on covers from the 1850s through the 1900s, and anything family related...i.e. American Sugar Company, R.W. Meyer, Ltd., etc.

I have been a serious student of Hawaiian Philately for over 40 yrs. I serve as an expertizer on Hawaiian Stamps and have managed to accumulate many of the lesser known varieties in the field of Hawaiian Philately. I still maintain an avid scholarly interest in all phases of Hawaiiana.

I sell and buy postal history of the world, and collect Canadian Civil Internee postal history. From the first time that I encountered this website, I have recommended it to others, whether or not they are serious collectors of Hawaiian postal history, just to demonstrate how good a philatelic website can be…Whenever I have a question about a Hawaiian cancel, and it surprisingly often, this is the only site that I need to go to.

Hi. I collect worldwide AR/return receipt/rückschein/ricivuta di ritorno, etc., and was fascinated by the early registered and AR covers on your site. [I have one Hawaiian AR cover, on stationery, but with two stamps missing; I bought it on e-Bay, after missing two other intact ones, one on e-Bay, the other in a Rumsey-Schuyler auction.]

When I have some time, I intend to prepare a monograph on worldwide AR (and related) service.

I collect just U.S. except for Hawaii. We spend a couple of weeks in Hawaii each year, and have become interested in early stamps. as well as early Hawaiian History.

I am of Barbadian descent, and am collecting world-wide especially of island nations (such as Barbados and Hawaii). This website on Hawaiian stamps provides everything I need to know about the Hawaiian stamps I am seeking. Scott, your research on Hawaiian stamp history (and the culture of the island nation it once was)is outstanding.

You have a wonderful web site. My interests started with early US and focused on Hawaii stamps while living in Honolulu. I currently have a few Hawaiian Numerals and pre-1871 but I have all 1871 and later and am missing only one stamp from 1871, except for the 61B & 66C errors. I've since started collecting countries that I have visited such as Iceland, Germany and Spain.

i like to collect aii kinds of stamps . they should be really nice.

Dennis S.Q. Kim

Sir: I find your site most comprehensive and informative. I worked with Mr. Burns to compile his last revision to volume II (typed) regarding town cancels and am interested in town cancels and postal history. I am not a expert, however I appreciate the beauty of Hawaii's postal history and cancels.

I wish I had the time to persue my hobby more, however the persuit of saving Hawaii's
vanishing flora has taken most of my time and interest. I do have some of the IRRRR items (listed as tentative) along with other items which I can't identify (cancels) and will share them with you on your trip in May. Aloha, Dennis

What a wonderfully detailed site. Thanks for standing with our hawaiian history. We currently make non-profit donations and philatelic training for youth possible at RMH, schools & museums. My 30 years of service culminated in a 2017 US NAVY retirement ceremony on the USS MISSOURI, with my last duty station at Camp Smith. My 60 years of collecting has a growing focus on Hawaiian pre-cancels.

Robert Labelle

Enjoyed your Website. My interest is mainly in the postal stationary of Hawaii, and I was delighted to find the comprehensive catalog of same.

I visited the Islands in 1979 while on sabbartical at Oregon State U. My wife and I enjoyed an unintended stopover on the big Island, landing on both coasts, and then went on to Honolulu, where I ran in the marathon, and then to Maui. I say that I "ran" it, but actually it was so warm and muggy despite a very early start that I walked a lot. Oh well, it was a nice week's vacation.

I always had a burning desire to travel to Hawaii because of its unique beauty and a few years ago my dream came true and I had a long holiday on Oahu and Kauai. I fell in love with the place, people and lifestyle and when I returned home to the UK, I started to gather a small collection of postcards from the early part of the last century.

Recently, whilst perusing Hawaiian artefacts on EBay, I noticed some early postage stamps for sale and was quite taken back by the portraits of the Hawaiian Royal family. Anyway, this inspired me to do a little research into the 'Postal history of Hawaii' and I was thrilled to see that there were many others available and many, many variations.

So to cut a long story short, I now feel inspired to start a collection and through the good fortune of finding your website, I will be able to glean some valuable background knowledge to steer me in the right direction.

Thank you.

Dan Lewis

Hi! I'm a kama'aina born and raised in Hilo, and now living in California. I'm in the process of selling my general U.S. stamps to concentrate entirely on Hawaii. I'm primarily interested in covers to and from Hilo. I stumbled upon your
Davey/Bash pages and was fascinated!! I'm a manuscripts curator by profession. I miss the Big Island! I'm 41 and my parents still live in Hilo (my dad, anyway; my mom passed away in Hilo in 1997). I'd appreciate knowing of any Hilo covers you've got for sale and from time to time will buy them from you. Mahalo nui loa, and a haoli makahiki hou... -Dan Lewis, Ph.D.

I'm not a professional, but I used to collect stamps as a child, and your website has inspired me to start again. As I come from the South Pacific (I'm originally from New Zealand), I found the Hawaii aspect really interesting too. Thanks for your effort in making this site!!
