Arago: 3-cent Hawaii Issue

3-cent Hawaii Issue

On October 18, 1937 the Post Office issued a 3-cent violet stamp to honor the Territory of Hawaii. This issue was part of a program to recognize the various United States territories. The vertically oriented design shows the statue of King Kamehameha I that stands in front of Iolani Palace in Honolulu. It was Kamehameha I (1736-1819) who united the Hawaiian islands into one kingdom.
