VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THREE RECORDED MULTIPLES OF THE 1861 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III THIRD PRINTING ON COVER AND THE ONLY ONE USED WITH UNITED STATES STAMPS.

This cover was carried on the American bark Young Hector, which cleared Honolulu on June 26, 1864, and arrived in San Francisco on July 19.

The Gregory census of 1861 5c Third Printing covers lists three with pairs (the largest size multiple known on cover). Of the three, only this cover is a mixed franking with United States stamps. The 5c Kamehameha III pair prepaid the U.S. and Hawaiian postage, and the U.S. stamp was affixed at the Honolulu post office. The practice of applying the U.S. stamp over the Honolulu marking is evidenced by a fair number of covers in this period.

Feb. 9, 1864” double-circle datestamp and “DUE 6” straightline handstamp, the datestamp also ties stamp and the due marking indicates proper rate for a ship letter addressed to port of entry

EXTREMELY FINE IN EVERY RESPECT. THE 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III 1861 THIRD PRINTING ON BLUISH PAPER IS SCARCE ON COVER. THIS CHOICE TIED EXAMPLE IS A RARE USE TO THE PORT OF SAN FRANCISCO WITH “DUE 6” RATE.

Fred Gregory reports 50 covers with the 5c Third Printing (Scott 9), but only 15 are covers with this stamp used alone (not in combination with United States stamps). Only one other is addressed to San Francisco, and the cover offered here is the only one with the “Due 6” straightline. It was carried on the Comet, departing Honolulu on January 21, 1864, arriving in San Francisco on February 9.

Letters from Hawaii to San Francisco showing the 1863 rates are discussed in the Gregory book (Volume II, pages 165-169). The San Francisco post office inconsistently applied the 4c and 6c collect rates. Six examples are recorded by Gregory.

Honolulu Shipping & Commission Merchants" oval backstamp, stamps with few faults incl. right stamp expertly repaired at top right

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE MULTIPLE OF THE HAWAII 5-CENT THIRD PRINTING ON COVER. BELIEVED TO BE A UNIQUE USE.

The Honolulu Advertiser collection contained a pair on cover, used with a U.S. 5c stamp (applied in San Francisco on July 20, 1864). On that cover, the pair of Hawaiian stamps included 5c prepayment of United States postage, as the cover was marked with the "Honolulu Postage Paid" datestamp. The cover offered here was franked the same way, probably intending to pay postage to destination with the Hawaiian stamps. However, the postmaster in Honolulu did not use the "Honolulu Postage Paid" handstamp, either due to error or because he thought the letter was overweight. When it reached San Francisco, the postmaster there treated the U.S. postage as unpaid and so marked it with the "Ship 6" handstamp for 3c postage plus 3c penalty for non-prepayment.
