VERY FINE. AN EXTREMELY UNUSUAL MIXED UNITED STATES AND HAWAIIAN FRANKING DURING THE CONVENTION PERIOD, WHEN THE 6-CENT RATE COULD BE PREPAID WITH THE STAMP OF THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN.

The 6c U.S.-Hawaii treaty rate (Jul. 1, 1870, to Dec. 31, 1881) required the sender in Hawaii to affix only a Hawaiian stamp on a letter addressed to a place within the United States. The addressee, Clara Moseley, was the daughter of Hiram Bingham Moseley, a descendent of Rev. Hiram Bingham, one of the Pioneer Company of Missionaries. The sender's decision to affix U.S. and Hawaiian 6c stamps could have been a misinterpretation of the rate requirements, although this seems unlikely eight years into the Convention period. It is also possible that the letter was over the half-ounce weight limit, and the U.S. stamp was added to pay the additional rate.

Ex Braus, Risvold and "Andromeda". With 2010 P.F. certificate.
