Hi all, I recently bought a cover from eBay, an early December 1941 Christmas card from Hawaii to the mainland. If I understand the rates correctly, Hawaii, which was a territory then, not a state, qualified for the 3c surface rate, but had its own pricey air mail rates to the mainland. The third class single piece rate was 1.5c. I was thinking it might be a discounted Christmas card usage (the flap is unsealed) but I don't think so.

So what is the 4c paying? is it merely an overpaid surface or third class?

I'd love your help on this. I include the images culled from eBay.

I'm not sure about the rate but that is a very cool cover from Honolulu 3 days before Pearl Harbor.

Looks like the Christmas Seal is also tied to the cover-very nice item. (I don't have a clue about the rate since I don't have the Wawrukewicz & Beecher book, but that's where I'd go to determine the rate.)

re: Help with a 1941 rate

the seal is definitely tied, which is what lead me to acquire it. I consulted the Beecher book, but unless i'm looking at the wrong pages, i cannot find the answer
