I'm needing some help with this cancellation. I can make out "KILAUEA" and "May ?? 1901". Any ideas on what the bottom says? Is this Kilauea, Hawaii? Not finding any similar cancels in my online searches.

That is a beautiful block! Yes, this is from Kilauea, Hawaii and the bottom should be "H.ISLS."

Also, the killer portion of the duplex cancel will be "HAWAII" since Kilauea is on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Here is a similar cancel from my collection from Lihue, Hawaiian Islands, with a "KAUAI" duplex killer. See this link:

Hope this helps you,
