Dec. 7, 1864" double-circle ds and cogwheel duplex, bold "SHIP 6" indicating this was to be charged double the port-of-entry rate in addition to the 2c ship fee, reverse with partial "San Francisco Cal. Advertised Dec. 14"; stamp with two small tears, cover with repaired tear at bottom left and some expert restoration at bottom including "San" and "F" of "Francisco," flap reattached, Fine appearance. A rare single usage of the Kamehameha IV Issue, and a very early example of an 1864 "restored" rate; due to a misinterpretation of the July 1, 1864, Act of Congress by the San Francisco postmaster, Hawaii began charging 10c for letters to the U.S. from Sept. 17 to Nov. 11, with 2c charged for ship fee; for a brief three-week period (Nov. 12 to Dec. 2) the ship fee was included in the 10c rate; on Dec. 3, however, Postmaster General Kalakaua, having received word from the postmaster of San Francisco, published a notice which restored the rates of July 1, 1863. The unusual manuscript postmark is probably an abbreviation for "Makawao Plantation Post Office." Makawao was an early plantation town on Maui, site of the East Maui Plantation. Although markings are not recorded this early, the office was in operation, and, in March 1864, the Honolulu office sent out $10.00 worth of the 2c Boston Lithographs, though only $1.00 worth of 5c stamps (Numerals) and $1.00 of U.S. stamps
