A VERY FINE COVER WITH THE HAWAIIAN 1857 5” ON 13-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III PROVISIONAL STAMP USED IN COMBINATION WITH THE UNITED STATES 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE. ONE OF ELEVEN SUCH
COMBINATIONS RECORDED BY GREGORY.
The Gregory census lists 18 covers with the 5c on 13c surcharge (Volume III, Appendix II-F). Five were carried on this trip of the Vaquero, which stopped at Honolulu on its way from Australia and carried
two bags of mail when it cleared Honolulu on June 27, 1857. She returned to safe harbor with a broken mast and left again on June 30 with additional mail, arriving in San Francisco on July 16. Mail to the east was postmarked in San Francisco on July
20 for the sailing of the PMSC John L. Stephens, which arrived in Panama City on August 3. At least some of the mail from the John L. Stephens missed the two sailings of USMSC steamers on August 3 (based on east coast postmarks on other
No. 7 covers from the same Honolulu sailing). If this cover missed those sailings as well, then it was likely carried on the August 13 sailing of the Illinois, which arrived in New York September 3 after a stop at Havana.
No. 9 in the
Gregory census and illustrated in Hawaiian Foreign Mail to 1870 (p. II-55). Ex Rohloff, Kramer (where erroneously described as carried on the Fanny Major) and Walske. With 2003 P.F. certificate. Scott Retail $45,000.00 (Image)

VERY FINE. A SCARCE COMBINATION OF THE 1857
5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III SECOND PRINTING AND UNITED STATES 12-CENT 1851 ISSUE AND ONE OF SIX RECORDED MIXED-FRANKING COVERS WITH OVERLAND” ROUTE DIRECTIVE MARKING.
This cover was carried on the bark Yankee, which departed Honolulu on October
3, 1859, and arrived in San Francisco on October 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 October 24 postmark date corresponds with the regular Monday stagecoach departure. Michael Perlman records 14 covers from Hawaii with the OVERLAND” handstamp, including six with U.S.-Hawaii mixed frankings (all 5c and
12c 1851). The addressee, Almira Lucilla Bartow, was the sister of Lahaina postmaster Cornelius S. Bartow.

VERY FINE. AN ATTRACTIVE AND RARE USE OF THE 1857 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III SECOND PRINTING
ON COVER TO SAN FRANCISCO WITH SHIP 5” DUE MARKING.
This cover was carried on the American whaling ship Harrison, which departed Honolulu on December 3, 1861, and arrived in San Francisco on December 18. Mail was postmarked at San
Francisco on the following day. The addressee is believed to be the daughter of Joel Turrill, a prominent attorney and congressman from Oswego, New York. He had served as U.S. Consul to the Hawaiian Islands (1845-50). In the financial crisis of 1857
he lost all of his property, and he died in December 1859. This cover was addressed to her in care of D. P. Belknap, a prominent San Francisco resident. Belknap presumably paid the 5c incoming ship-letter postage.

EXTREMELY FINE IN EVERY RESPECT. THE 5-CENT KAMEHAMEHA III 1861 THIRD PRINTING ON BLUISH PAPER IS SCARCE ON COVER. THIS CHOICE TIED EXAMPLE IS
A RARE USE TO THE PORT OF SAN FRANCISCO WITH DUE 6” RATE.
Fred Gregory reports 50 covers with the 5c Third Printing (Scott 9), but only 15 are covers with this stamp used alone (not in combination with United States stamps). Only one other is
addressed to San Francisco, and the cover offered here is the only one with the Due 6” straightline. It was carried on the Comet, departing Honolulu on January 21, 1864, arriving in San Francisco on February 9.
Letters from Hawaii to San
Francisco showing the 1863 rates are discussed in the Gregory book (Volume II, pages 165-169). The San Francisco post office inconsistently applied the 4c and 6c collect rates. Six examples are recorded by Gregory.
