Description:

Wells Fargo printed frank on 3c pink on buff postal entire (#U35) with blue "Wells , Fargo & Cos. Express S. Frco 3 Oct" (1862) double circle datestamp, with 3c pink (#65) tied by blue boxed "Collect" handstamp, matching additional "Collect" marking with manuscript "10c" due collected from the reipient, due to the letter being overweight. Marks correspondence with 1862 docketing. For information about the Marks correspondence see Cover ID 22309.

It is most likely that the sender dropped off this overweight letter in a San Francisco letter box on a street post, and thus Wells Fargo charged the recipient the extra 10 cent express fee, which included the 3c stamp.
