Sale 1083, Lot 1018, 1853-57 Kamehameha III IssuesHAWAII, 1857, 5c Blue, Thin White Wove (8). Large margins to full, bright shade, used with United States 12c Black (17), margins to in due to insect damage, both tied by red "Honolulu U.S. Postage Paid Oct. 3" (1859) circular datestamp on cover to Mrs. Maria P. Chamberlain in Parkesburgh Penn., stamps also tied by manuscript squiggles and "San Francisco Cal. Oct. 24, 1859" circular datestamp, bold strike of "OVERLAND" straightline handstamp (with small "R"), 5c light crease at bottom right in margin only, stamps with some toning, cover with some wear including small tear at bottom

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE MIXED-FRANKING COVER WITH THE 1857 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III ISSUE AND UNITED STATES 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE. ONLY A FEW ARE KNOWN WITH THE "OVERLAND" HANDSTAMP, WHICH WAS APPLIED IN SAN FRANCISCO TO INDICATE THE TRANSCONTINENTAL ROUTE.

The recipient, Mrs. Maria Chamberlain (nee Maria Patton) left Boston on November 3, 1827, and arrived in Honolulu on March 30, 1828. She was released from the mission in 1855 and visited the U.S. before returning to Hawaii.

This cover was carried on the bark Yankee, which departed Honolulu on Oct. 3, 1859, and arrived in San Francisco on Oct. 21. It arrived one day too late for the regular twice-monthly sailing for Panama and was marked with the "OVERLAND" handstamp to indicate its late arrival and alternate routing on the next Butterfield stagecoach. The San Francisco Oct. 24 postmark date corresponds with the regular Monday stagecoach departure. The Perlman-Frajola census records 14 covers from Hawaii with the "OVERLAND" handstamp, including six with U.S.-Hawaii mixed frankings (all 5c and 12c 1851).
