This is an exceptionally late usage of the 13¢ Hawaiian stamp and as such extremely rare in combination with the 5¢ Jefferson - possibly unique; the least expensive Scott catalog value for a combination usage with this stamp is $25,000, but that is with pre-Civil War US stamps. As far as we know this is the only such usage known
