::: Scott No. 9 Covers :::

Back to First Sub-Period of the Late Treaty Period.

61 - Nov 23 to Sturges, Scott 9 and US 36b

A cover postmarked at Honolulu on November 23, 1861, and at San Francisco on December 5, franked with a Hawaii Scott No. 9 and US Scott No. 36b. The Hawaiian stamp paid Hawaiian postage of 5 and the United States stamp paid United States postage of 10 plus the 2 ship fee for transit to San Francisco. The letter was carried from Honolulu to San Francisco by the American bark Comet, sailing November 23, 1861, and arriving December 4. In 1861, the Honolulu Post Office routinely avoided canceling postage stamps (both Hawaii and United States). Thus, Hawaiian stamps on cover from this time frame usually were left uncanceled in Hawaii and United States stamps were canceled at San Francisco. (ex Advertiser Collection)
