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).
