It's hard to tell without knowing what price they sold for and what you expected. But I would guess the nice fat margins and good centering of the 5. Cent King Kamehameha is the attraction.

Well, it could be that to a fancy cancel collector. I don't know how rare those are on Hawaii stamps. But isn't the 5 cent about 10x the Scott CV of the 2 cent (don't have a catalog handy)?

The 5c ultramarine is ~$3 , the blue variety ~$30 (the blue has frame line traces)
The provisional ~$3
The 2c $9-$20 depending which vermillion it is
The 1c $7-$20 depending which shade of purple
The rest a few dollars except the last 1 less $1

As for colors of the first three, I think they are purple, rose vermillion (just a guess), and ultramarine. But only you can be sure - well maybe not if you no longer have them.

This site has good illustrations of colors: http://www.theswedishtiger.com/hawaii-5.html

Scott 75 has a "Flying Goose" plate variety that cats $400 for used stamps. I have no idea what it looks like, and Scott doesn't bother to show it.

Here's an example of the Flying Goose Flaw: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HAWAII-75-RARE-FLYING-GOOSE-PLATE-FLAW-ERROR-/361098567307

Don't think that's the answer...... Puzzling!
