First Issues - Hawaii

The first Hawaiian issue, the "Hawaiian Missionaries" comprises some of the rarest and most expensive stamps in existence. I will never own copies of these, but the next best thing is a US set commemorating the Hawaiian issue, shown below and, incidentally, kindly sent to me by the founder of the First Issues Collectors Club, David Olson. The stamps and details from the souvenir sheet are shown below. Further details here.
