996 c ImageCorinth Miss. Jul. 3 (1861). Bold strike of circular datestamp with "PAID 5" in oval handstamp on cover to Pleasant Hill Ala. with red and blue 10-Star Confederate Flag, Liberty Cap and "T" for "Tennessee" Patriotic design (F10-7), missing backflap and small edge nicks, small tear at left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS 10-STAR PATRIOTIC DESIGN, WITH THE "T" FOR TENNESSEE (IN ERROR) IS EXTREMELY RARE -- MUCH RARER THAN THE 11-STAR FLAG WITH THE SAME DESIGN.

The 10-Star flags began with the admission of North Carolina to the Confederacy and ended with the admission of Tennessee (May 27 to July 2, 1861). The matching 11-Star design (F11-8) with the "T" for Tennessee is relatively scarce, but this design, with only 10 stars, is very rare (the previous version of this design, F9-1, lacks the central star and "T"). It may be that the printer was not aware of the admission of North Carolina. Whatever the reason, this design represents a fascinating error.

EXTREMELY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THIS SMALL 7-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG PATRIOTIC DESIGN, IN EXCEPTIONAL CONDITION. A GREAT RARITY MADE EVEN MORE DESIRABLE BY THE COLLEGE USE.

Fleetwood Academy, a military school for boys located in King and Queen County Virginia, was founded in 1839 by Oliver White. Modeling itself after the Virginia Military Institute, Fleetwood was noted for offering courses in mathematics, Greek, French, and natural philosophy, with an estimated yearly enrollment of thirty-five to forty cadets (source: revolvy.com).

1003 c ImageWoodstock Va. Jul. 17, 1861. Bold and clear strike of circular datestamp with year in manuscript, "PAID" straightline with ambiguous "6 cts" rate (or possibly "C cts"), also with manuscript "Due 5 cts" on cover to Moonfield Va. with red and blue 7-Star Confederate Flag with "Southern Rights" Banner Patriotic design (F7-9), "Parrott, Alexandria" imprint, corner and edge flaws including small mend at bottom left corner

VERY FINE APPEARING AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THIS "SOUTHERN RIGHTS" PATRIOTIC FLAG DESIGN WITH THE "PARROTT, ALEXANDRIA" IMPRINT.

Although the concept of States' Rights is referred to in verses on Patriotic covers, this is the only flag design which incorporates the words "Southern Rights." Other examples we have encountered were published by T. S. Whitaker of Wilmington N.C (including on the letter offered in lot 1484). This Parrott, Alexandria imprint, also found on the cover offered in lot 1479, is undoubtedly rare and is unlisted in the C.S.A. Catalog for this design.

Ex Matthies, where acquired by the Kilbournes in the 1968 sale of her Confederate Patriotics (Siegel Sale 337, lot 869). Illustrated in Wishnietsky's Confederate Patriotic Covers and Their Usages on p. 32 (Image)
