VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SPECTACULAR AND RARE FRANKING FROM HAWAII TO SAN FRANCISCO. ESPECIALLY RARE WITH THE ONE-CENT STAMP.

This cover is illustrated and discussed in the Gregory book (Volume II, page 175). According to Gregory, it was carried from Honolulu to San Francisco on the American bark Comet (cleared May 23, 1867, arrived June 6). After the Act of March 1863 effectively reduced the city delivery rate in San Francisco from 2c to 1c, the correct prepaid U.S. postage should have been 3c (1c for local delivery plus 2c ship captain’s fee). However, surviving covers show that there was much confusion over the correct amount to prepay.
