By the middle part of the 1890's, postal demands required larger stamp printings than Hawaii ordered for most stamps in the earlier Issues. However, the amounts printed were reduced by the official destruction of remainders at Washington, D. C., on February 9, 1901.

Scott No. 75 - 2 Honolulu Harbor Scene
State I of this plate was the original state, used for the first three printings. Most of the prominent transfer flaws found in Scott No. 75 are from State I. Before the fourth printing, the plate was re-entered and is known as State II for the fourth printing of this stamp and for all printings of Scott No. 81. Sometime in the fourth printing the plate was corroded in the area of positions 48 and 49 in the lower right pane. At first, the corrosion produced an ink speck in the sky of stamps printed in position 48. The corrosion grew until it produced a galaxy of ink specks, the largest of which is known as the Flying Goose Flaw.

Very few, if any, of Scott No. 75 were destroyed as remainders.
