Large margins all around including sheet margin at bottom, "tied" by vertical file fold, red "Honolulu*U.S. Postage Paid*May 13" (1854) circular datestamp on blue folded letter datelined "Hilo Oayhu April 23" and addressed to Wm. L. M. Phelps in Albany N.Y. (a prominent railroad executive), horizontal pair of United States 1851 3c Dull Red, Ty. II (11A), large margins to slightly in, affixed over 13c and all stamps tied by "San Francisco Cal. 16 Jun." circular datestamp, San Francisco "Paid" handstamp at left, 3c pair with tear at top, right stamp has vertical crease where folded back to display Hawaiian stamp

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE PASTE-OVER COMBINATION OF 1853 13-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III ISSUE AND UNITED STATES 3-CENT 1851 ISSUE. VERY DESIRABLE WITH THE HONOLULU POSTMARK AND SAN FRANCISCO "PAID".

This cover was carried on the bark Wavelet, which departed Honolulu on May 16, 1854, and arrived in San Francisco on June 8. From there it was sent to Panama on the Sonora, which departed on June 16 and arrived on June 29.

The 13c stamp prepaid the 5c Hawaiian postage, 2c ship captain's fee and 6c transcontinental rate. The short-lived practice of applying United States stamps (6c postage) over the 13c Hawaiian stamp was likely intended to avoid confusion over whether or not U.S. postage had been prepaid. The postmaster in Honolulu affixed the U.S. stamps to cover up the Hawaiian postage, and the letter was postmarked in San Francisco without applying a "Ship" or rate mark (although in this case it was marked "Paid"). The 2c ship fee was credited to San Francisco in the regular accounting.

Fred Gregory records eight such paste-over frankings (plus one earlier Missionary cover). Gregory Census No. 13-2. With 1978 P.F. certificate.

Sale Number 1172, Lot Number 1023, 1853-89 Kamehameha III Issues (Scott 5-7)HAWAII, 1853, 13c Dark Red, Thick White Wove (6), HAWAII, 1853, 13c Dark Red, Thick White Wove (6)HAWAII, 1853, 13c Dark Red, Thick White Wove (6). Large margins to just barely shaving frameline at left, cancelled by unusual segmented grid, red "Honolulu*U.S. Postage Paid* Oct. 3" (1854) circular datestamp on cover to Mr. William Lord at Hillingworth Conn., neat "PAID/8/SHIP" handstamp struck over Honolulu datestamp, "San Francisco Cal. 1 Nov." circular datestamp, some slight edgewear and light toning

VERY FINE. A RARE SINGLE FRANKING OF THE 13-CENT 1853 ISSUE. ONLY FIVE COVERS ARE RECORDED WITH THE 1853 13-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III STAMP USED BY ITSELF PRIOR TO APRIL 1855, PAYING THE SHORT-LIVED RATE FOR WHICH IT WAS CREATED.

This cover was carried on the schooner E. L. Frost, which departed Honolulu on Oct. 4, 1854, and arrived in San Francisco on Oct. 28. From there it was sent to Panama on the John L. Stephens, which departed on Nov. 1 and arrived on Nov. 13.

The Gregory census contains just five examples of the 13c Kamehameha III stamp used by itself -- without any secondary franking -- on covers dated prior to the United States April 1855 rate change. This rate change effectively increased the Hawaiian rate to the U.S. East Coast from 13c to 17c, thereby destroying the purpose for which this stamp was originally created, which was to pay the 5c internal Hawaiian rate, 2c ship's fee and 6c of United States postage. During the period from May 1853 until April 1855, the practice of affixing United States stamps to Hawaiian mail became more regular.

Gregory Census No. 13-8. Ex Tows, Jessup, Krug, Rust, Pietsch and Golden. With 1960 Friedl, 1987 and 2011 P.F. certificates.

(1854) circular datestamp on cover to Otis B. Oakman in North Marshfield Mass., without Honolulu postmark but a well-known correspondence of Hawaiian origin, some edge tears and soiling, 3c stamps with faults including crease from displaying underlying stamp

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE PASTE-OVER COMBINATION OF THE 1853 13-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III ISSUE AND UNITED STATES 3-CENT 1851 ISSUE.

The San Francisco Nov. 16 (1854) postmark date coincides with the preparation of the mail carried to Panama on the Golden Age, which departed on Nov. 16 and arrived on Nov. 28. Without any indication of the origin date in Honolulu, we cannot pinpoint one of the various ship sailings that arrived in San Francisco before Nov. 16 and after the prior sailing for Panama in November.

The 13c stamp prepaid the 5c Hawaiian postage, 2c ship captain's fee and 6c transcontinental rate. The short-lived practice of applying United States stamps (6c postage) over the 13c Hawaiian stamp was likely intended to avoid confusion over whether or not U.S. postage had been prepaid.
