series of postage stamps was issued to commemorate the three hundredth
anniversary of the settling of Walloons
From 1864 to
1878, all of Hawaii's postage stamps were printed by the National Bank
Note Company of New York. Through most of the last half of the 19th
Century American printing firms were consolidating, culminating in an
1879 consolidation of the National Bank Note Company, Continental Bank
Note Company and American Bank Note Company with predecessor firms such
as Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson, Toppan and Carpenter and Company. Many
United States specialists mistakenly think the NBNCo ceased to exist in
1873 and give Hawaii specialists a skeptical look when we talk about
NBNCo stamps being printed as late as 1878. In 1873, the United States
switched printers and replaced the NBNCo with Continental, but the NBNCo
continued to produce Hawaiian stamps for six more years until both the
NBNCo and Continental were swallowed by the ABNCo.
sequences used in most catalogues bear no relationship to the printing
sequence. Cataloguers prefer to order things in ascending denomination.
According to printing sequence, the nine Hawaiian stamps produced by the
NBNCo are Scott Catalogue Nos. 30a, 30b, 31, 32, 33, 33a, 34, 35 and
36. Missing from this list are Scott Nos. 30 and 31a, both of which
were printed after the American Bank Note Company merger, as were all of
Hawaii's postage stamps beginning with Scott No. 37. For details of each
