The Civil War, featuring the 'Ambassador' Collection continued...

C.S.A. Patriotic Covers continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
153 c Image5c Light Blue, De La Rue (6). Two, each has ample margins to slightly in, bright shade, minor wrinkling caused by drying gum, tied by "Notasulga Ala. Jul. 12" (1862) circular datestamp on small cover to Troy Ala. with red and blue 9-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F9-2B), reduced at left, slight wear

FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS RARE CONFEDERATE 9-STAR FLAG, FRANKED WITH THE 5-CENT DE LA RUE TYPOGRAPH ISSUE.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Very few examples of the 9-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic designs are known, some of which have handstamped "Paid" markings and no stamps. This small, choice cover with the 5c De La Rue franking is one of the finest we have encountered.

157 c ImageTudor Hall Va. Mar. 4, 1862. Circular datestamp and "Due 10" in arc handstamp on red and blue 11-Star Confederate Flag and "Pelican Regimt." Flag, Tent and "Crescent Rifles, Company H, 7th Reg't. La. Volunteers" Regimental Patriotic cover (TF-5) to Ella P. Rind in New Orleans, boxed "ADV.1" handstamp for 1c advertising fee, endorsed "A.R. Breedlove", slightly reduced at left not affecting the design, light file fold at right, faint soiling

VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING AND RARE REGIMENTAL PATRIOTIC DESIGN, PRODUCED EARLY IN THE WAR.

Our survey of decades of Confederate sale catalogues and reference books located only seven examples of this distinctive Crescent Rifles patriotic, including the two covers offered in Kilbourne Part One (Siegel Sale 1186) and the example offered here. Five are used from Tudor Hall, including:

1) Tudor Hall Oct. 23, 1861 datestamp and "Due 10", to Mrs. Harry T. Hays, Dover Miss., ex Kimmel (Siegel Sale 492, lot 934)

2) Tudor Hall Oct. ?, 1861 and 10”, to M. Harris, New Orleans, Siegel Sale 1182, lot 466

3) Tudor Hall Nov. 9, 1861 datestamp and "Due 10", to Mrs. Harry T. Hays, Dover Miss., Kilbourne Part One, Siegel Sale 1186, lot 588

4) Tudor Hall Dec. ?, 1861 datestamp, with 10c Dark Blue, Hoyer & Ludwig, to Mrs. Harry T. Hays, Dover Miss., Siegel Sale 1167, lot 2482

5) Tudor Hall Mar. 4, 1862 datestamp, to Ella P. Rind, New Orleans, "Adv.1" handstamp, illustrated in Wishnietsky book on p. 117, ex Kilbourne, the cover offered here

In addition to these five Tudor Hall covers, which are genuine uses from members of the 7th Regiment, Louisiana Volunteers, there are two others:

6) Federal usage of the envelope with a 3c 1861 tied by Washington D.C. Mar. 13, 1862 datestamp and marked "Found at Manassas", Kilbourne Part One, Siegel Sale 1186, lot 589

7) Cover with 10c Die B barely tied by town datestamp, possibly not originating, ex Kohn (Siegel Sale 382, lot 1470)

As a Colonel, Harry T. Hays was the original commander of the 7th Louisiana Volunteers, which was called the Pelican Regiment. Although composed of farmers, laborers and clerks, the Louisiana 7th Regiment was described as a "crack regiment" by Gen. Richard Taylor. Hays went on to become a General.

158 c ImageWarrington Fla. Nov. 29 (1861). Circular datestamp with "PAID" straightline and "5" in circle handstamp, also manuscript "Paid 5" on cover to Woodville Miss. with red and blue 11-Star Confederate Flag, "Semper Paratus" and "Quitman Light Artillery, of Natchez. Capt. R.T. English." Patriotic design (F11-5, Slogan 67), expertly mended backflap tear which just extends to front

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A CHOICE COMBINATION OF THIS 11-STAR FLAG DESIGN AND THE "SEMPER PARATUS" MOTTO OF THE QUITMAN LIGHT ARTILLERY, USED ON A COVER FROM FLORIDA.

Semper Paratus is a Latin phrase meaning "Always Ready." It is currently used as the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard. The Quitman Light Artillery was an independent battery mustered into service on April 9, 1861, made up of men from Adams County, Mississippi. R. T. English was at first listed as 3rd lieutenant of the battery, but by November 1861 he had evidently risen to captain.

EXTREMELY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING COMBINATION OF THIS 11-STAR FLAG DESIGN AND THE "VICTORY OR DEATH" MADISON RIFLES SLOGAN, USED ON A COVER FROM FLORIDA.

This is one of the most attractive Warrington Florida Patriotic covers we have encountered. The original or "Old" 10th Mississippi Infantry, including Company I (Madison County Rifles), was organized in March 1861 and fought in several campaigns and battles in the Western Theater during the Civil War.
