Dec. 9” circular datestamp struck next to the Hawaiian stamp, receipt docketing on back “John Neill Dec. 10th 1869”, barely reduced at left, few insignificant toned spots at top

VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE MIXED-FRANKING COVER WITH THE 1866 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA V AND UNITED STATES 10-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUES. THIS IS THE EARLIEST OF THE NINE RECORDED 10-CENT 1869 PICTORIAL ISSUE COVERS FROM HAWAII.

This cover was carried on the American steamer Idaho, which cleared Honolulu on November 27, 1869, and arrived in San Francisco on December 9. Most mail was datestamped on arrival on December 10, but since this was addressed to San Francisco, it must have been processed before mail sent to other destinations by the recently completed Union Pacific railroad line.

Michael Laurence, on page 311 of his outstanding book on the 10c 1869 Issue, records only nine 10c covers from Hawaii. All are used with the Hawaii 5c stamp, No. 32. Only four of these bear single examples of each stamp. Only one other is addressed to San Francisco (ex Golden).

Ex Krug, Rust, Pietsch and Gross. Illustrated in the Gregory book (II-247).

This cover was carried on the contract steamship Idaho, which cleared Honolulu on November 2, 1867, and arrived in San Francisco on November 15. This was the first return voyage of the Idaho under contract with the North Pacific Transportation Company. Starting with this trip, mail received the red oval “Hawaiian Steam Service” handstamp. Only two covers carried on this voyage did not receive this marking.
