    Either a moratorium tag or some sort of tax tag is my guess.

    The hat looks more like a cardinal's than a king's crown.

    church humm -- the crown looks like the --" hawiian crown" --- a type used by the old hawiian royality --- the church might have been set up and supported by planters * ( american , british or german maybe) most planters were foreigners and set up churches for converting the local hawaiians to their religions ( it helped them gain control of them via religion -- (the preachers told the hawaiians to be meek and peaceful and go along as part of their convertion "process")--the outside "bussiness" planter faction ( basically a ultra wealthy bunch of robber baron types) illegally over threw the king and took over control of the hawiian islands by causing "unrest" from within --then "demanding" the usa land troops to take over since things had "broken down" and the king was not "in control" anymore --once the US military "intervened" --the queen was forced to sign over all powers to the us govt --basically she was held in house arrest for "her protection" until she did so. -- it was similar to the way the native american indain "land grabs" were done -- white "bussiness" land grabbers want land that the indains by right of "treaty" have ---so the white land grabbers tresspass upon it and cause "unrest" then demand that the US Military be brought in to "do" something about the indain "unrest" that breaks the treaty --the next thing you know the "trouble making" indains are rounded up and shipped of to some bleak hell hole and the lands been grabbed . -- old school land stealing 101.
