EXTREMELY FINE. AN UNUSUALLY CHOICE EXAMPLE OF THE CALIFORNIA PENNY POST COMPANY ENTIRE USED FROM STOCKTON TO SAN FRANCISCO WITH PRIVATE AND GOVERNMENT POSTAL MARKINGS.

This entire was delivered to the post office (for 2c) in Stockton, carried by government mail to San Francisco where delivered by the Penny Post Co. (for 5c, total 7c). Examples with the Penny Post Company handstamp and a post office datestamp are rare -- the Frajola census lists only two of this Type 4A entire with private and government markings combined.
