VERY FINE. A RARE AND COLORFUL MIXED-FRANKING COVER BEARING THE 5-CENT HAWAIIAN STAMP AND STAMPS FROM THE UNITED STATES 1861 AND 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUES.

This cover was carried on either the American Schooner Jane A. Falkenberg or the John Hancock, both of which departed Honolulu on February 26, 1870, and arrived in San Francisco on March 16. The U.S. postage is overpaid by 1c. During the contract steamer period, mail addressed to the U.S. was charged 5c Hawaiian and 10c U.S. postage, regardless of destination. As such, lower rates to San Francisco no longer applied.

Unlisted in the Gregory census of 1869 stamps on covers from Hawaii used before July 1, 1870 -- 13 such uses are recorded (Vol. III, p. 41). Ex Atherton
