Lithographed Issues (Scott 5)
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
224 og Image10c Rose (5). Positions 45-47, horizontal strip of three with complete "LITH. OF HOYER & LUDWIG RICHMOND VA." Type 1 imprint at bottom, original gum, few h.r. and few adherences, radiant color, few flaws including thin spots, creases and small edge tears

VERY FINE APPEARANCE AND AN IMPORTANT CONFEDERATE STATES RARITY. THIS IS ONE OF ONLY APPROXIMATELY FIVE RECORDED MULTIPLES OF THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH SHOWING THE COMPLETE IMPRINT. ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH ORIGINAL GUM.

There are at least two unused pairs of the 10c Rose showing the imprint with a portion of "Richmond" missing -- one lacks the "M" and "N", while the other lacks most of the lettering after "RI" and is also partially severed and rejoined (ex Walcott, Caspary and Murphy, Sale 795, lot 745). A vertical strip of three is also known without gum, but it only shows part of the imprint (Sale 1182, lot 310). A strip of four without gum is the largest imprint multiple we record (ex Hastings and Kilbourne, Sale 1186, lot 677).

225   Image10c Carmine Rose, "Cammann" Imprint (5 var). Position 41 with top of "C" of "Cammann" in left sheet margin (listed in C.S.A. Catalogue as i3 imprint variety), beautiful rich color which we feel is the Carmine shade (5a), but accompanying certificate states Carmine Rose, large to huge margins, manuscript cancel, tiny coal speck inclusion with nearly microscopic pinhole in it, faint short internal creases shows in fluid

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF FIVE RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE "CAMMANN" IMPRINT ON THE 10-CENT ROSE OR CARMINE LITHOGRAPH. A FASCINATING GENERAL ISSUE VARIETY.

Research by Everett Cooper (published in the Confederate Philatelist, Jan.-Feb. 1985) established that Cammann was indeed a lithographic worker, but Cooper connected the "Cammann" imprint to work performed for J. T. Paterson (two Confederate banknotes printed by J. T. Paterson and bearing the Cammann imprint were offered in Sale 1071, lot 4518). It is known that the Paterson firm acquired some of Hoyer & Ludwig's equipment and employed a number of lithographers who had previously worked for Hoyer & Ludwig. The 5c Blue and 10c Rose lithographed stamps, which have always been attributed exclusively to Hoyer & Ludwig, could well have been printed by both Hoyer & Ludwig and J. T. Paterson, with the Hoyer & Ludwig imprint on the 10c stone left unchanged during the later Paterson printings. The addition of the "Cammann" imprint on 5c Blue and 10c Rose stamps tends to support Cooper's theory that a portion of the printing took place at the Paterson firm.

This stamp is the basis of the illustration in the 1929 Dietz book (p. 119). Ex Knapp, Hall and Freeman. With 2014 P.F. certificate as "Carmine Rose" (Image)

227 og Image10c Rose, "Big Shift" Replaced Transfer (5 var). Positions 14-15, horizontal pair, left stamp (Position 14) shows re-entry with significant doubling of large part of design, original gum, large margins, fresh and bright color, small thin visible beneath hinge remnant

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A SUPERB EXAMPLE OF THIS REMARKABLE VARIETY -- ALSO THE ONLY RECORDED MULTIPLE OF THE 10-CENT ROSE WITH A SHIFTED TRANSFER.

The C.S.A. Catalog discusses the 10c Rose Replaced or Shifted Transfers (p. 332) and states that there is only one multiple recorded containing a shift. They are constant varieties (not transient), and are rare with between one and six recorded from seven positions on the printing stone. Opinions differ on how and why they were created. The lack of large multiples and general scarcity of the 10c Rose has hampered their study.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 10-CENT ROSE, GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E.

231 c Image10c Rose (5). A phenomenal stamp with full corner sheet margins and huge margins all around, small sealed margin tear, faint pre-use crease and minor gum soaks, paying new 10c rate and tied by "Salisbury N.C. Jul. 10, 1861 [sic]" circular datestamp -- used in 1862, but the old year date left in place -- on small prisoner's cover to Elias Dill in Gray, Maine, endorsed "From a prisoner of war", manuscript "ExNK" and "W B Haslett" examiners' marks, manuscript "Due 3" for unpaid U.S. postage

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING AND SPECTACULAR STAMP. ONE OF THREE RECORDED PRISONER-OF-WAR COVERS WITH THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH. ONE OF THE OTHERS, KNOWN TO ANTRIM AND PICTURED IN HIS BOOK, WAS DESCRIBED AS "PERHAPS THE MOST DESIRABLE OF ALL THE CONFEDERATE PRISONER-OF-WAR COVERS", AN OPINION THAT CERTAINLY APPLIES TO THIS COVER.

This cover is offered with original letter enclosure, datelined "Salisbury N.C. June 20, '62", written by Major Daniel M. Dill to his father. Military service records sourced from the internet report: Major Dill entered service as private; promoted to Corporal, Dec. 26, 1861; taken prisoner at Fair Oaks Va., May 31, 1862; confined in Libby Prison, Salisbury, N.C, and Belle Isle in the James River opposite Richmond; exchanged Sep. 15, 1862. He was promoted to Captain in the 6th Regiment, U. S. Volunteers, Sep. 1, 1863; to Major of U. S. Volunteers by brevet, Mar. 13, 1865; mustered out at Wilmington, N. C, Sep. 20, 1865.

Major Dill's letter notes that living conditions in Salisbury prison were acceptable. At this point Salisbury held no more than 600 prisoners, who were well-fed and housed in decent quarters. Two years later, 10,000 prisoners arrived and turned Salisbury into the "Most lothsome dunguns in Rebeldom". Major Dill informs his father to leave envelopes unsealed for censoring by U.S. authorities.

We record only three 10c Rose lithographs on prisoner-of-war covers (not counting civilian flag-of-truce covers or a single turned cover re-mailed with a 10c Rose). Each of the three was sent from Salisbury Prison (see Sales 1208, lot 296 and 1087, lot 581). Ex Freeman (Image)

Dec. 10" circular datestamp with date in manuscript on Jefferson Davis Medallion and 7 Stars Patriotic cover (JD-1A) to Fort Gibson Miss., cover with couple small holes and minor edge flaws

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH ON A JEFFERSON DAVIS MEDALLION PATRIOTIC COVER.

Patriotic covers bearing the 10c Rose are rare and desirable, and they are extremely rare used on Jefferson Davis Medallion Patriotics. A Power Search review failed to find another example.

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH COVERS ORIGINATING IN TEXAS, OF WHICH FEWER THAN A HALF-DOZEN ARE KNOWN.

Our Levi records contain five 10c Rose (any shade) covers from Texas, of which only one is in condition anywhere near comparable to the cover offered here. This cover to Jose San Roman, a well-known blockade-runner and supplier to the Confederate government, was postmarked at Victoria on March 22, 1863, just eight days before one of the two known Victoria postmaster's provisional covers was mailed, to Jose San Roman (ex Kilbourne and "D.K." collections, last offered in Siegel Sale 1022, lot 1123).
