Hello,

This King Kalakaua Hawaii 2c variant belongs to the older part of my worldwide collection.
From an expert feedback, its value is 200,00 $.
Because this variant is unmarked, I am doubtful about it.

What should be its value?

Thx.

Welcome.
What is the variation? Do you mean the right hand side margin?

If so, my opinion is that it is a "margin copy" with little additional value over any other HAWAII Scott #43 2C. Here is a recently sold margin (left hand side) copy https://www.ebay.com/itm/225092473262

Your stamp would be considered a 'jumbo' margin by some, but this would add only a small amount of additional value.

Thank you for your quick answer.

Yes, the variation is the right hand side margin.

May I ask, who was the expert who examined this? From the scan, this looks to be the more common rose stamp of 1886, Scott #43, not the #38 that better fits the price given. Further, did that person note the quotation was "catalogue value", which is an idealized number for a mint high-grade stamp? In any case, the real value here would be much less vs. catalog value, since it is without gum and has corner creases. It also looks to be a used example with a very light or faded cancel on the right side.

In actuality, a straightedge margin copy like this would have a reduced value against catalog value. Stamps with perfs all around are very much preferred. Check out the "sold" listings on eBay for a more accurate idea of what this stamp is worth and to see how relatively common straightedge examples are.

Thank you for the answer.

This was a feedback from a local expert outside of the USA.
