Scott: This is a wonderful site and helpful in identifying Hawaiian stamps. I am a collector and part time dealer. On occasion I find various Hawaiian stamps in old stamp albums purchased at local auctions. The Scott catalog is very difficult to use, however your site is absolutely first rate. Thanks for sharing information on Hawaiian postage.

Great web site! I'm glad I found it. I am seeking information about Pacific mail ship sailings between
Manila and Honolulu for the 1930's-40's. In specific, I have a Manila postmarked
envelope of Nov.23, addressed to the mainland US. It was franked with surface
postage only, and somewhere along the way it was censored. By best guesses and
a little research, i figure the sea journey from Manila to Honolulu was c. 12 days.
Nov23 1941 appears to have been a Sunday,and THanksgiving would have been
the following Thursday. I can guess about a lot of things, and have this envelope
sitting in a mailbag on a ship in Honolulul during Pearl Harbor. I also know that
censorship of foreign mail was authorized Dec.12,(Friday) and probably really
got started 15th-18th. So, that's why mail-carrying ships sailing schedules
become impoirtant to me, to try and get a little more specific. Can you point me to
some likely resources? Thanks.

I am not a collector but am interested in Hawaiian history through stamps, especially the Kalakaua era, 1881-91 and in general, in stamps that feature pictures of the monarchy.

I am a retired physician, (now professor emeritus at the UH medical school), and I volunteer as a docent at Iolani Palace. My friend Keith Steiner has put me on to your site as a resource, and when I mention stamps and their importance in my tour, people seem quite interested in their history and their function then.
Aloha, Jack McDermott

Fantastic site - love the historical background. Am not a stamp collector, but have acquired many stampless Hawaiian covers for their historical content. Am always on the lookout for broadsides, stampless covers, Hawaiian photos and ephemera.

The most comprehensive site devoted to a single area of study I have visited. If only all could be so designed. I visited to learn
about the stamps that I sell as a dealer and to eliminate uncertainties about forgeries and real items.

Duane Oat

I was thrilled to find your site. Joseph Oat (Postmaster, Hawaiian Provisional Government, 1893) was my great, great grandfather. I became interested in collecting stamps when I was a child, and now have an extensive collection of commemorative issue stamps. I've often thought how ironic it was that I became interested in stamps, not knowing earlier on that I had a former Postmaster in my family's past!!!

Great site, it's certainly in my bookmarks of Favorites!

Kind Regards,
Duane Oat

Intererested in all Hawaiian stamps-particularly the less expensive ones. The old(1931) Scott Int'l album in my possession had only one page for Hawaii In 1946 I spent ayear with the Navy at the Honolulu airport checking the plane for its proper weight-stayed in a bunk upstairs in that small airport. It's a lot bigger now!

US Specialist since 1946, I have collected US Possessions for the past 4 years. I have a very small want list of Hawaii, other than Missionaries, which are financially unatainable. It includes #'s 8,11,&28 and numerals #'s 15,16,20,21,23,24,&25. There are more expensive holes to fill, but I doubt if I can afford them.
