United States
Confederate States: General Issues On Cover

Sale No: 1215
Lot No: 2581
Symbol: C
Cat No: 1(1)

image 5c Green, Stone 1, Baton Rouge Roulette (1 var). Horizontal pair, roulettes on all sides, beautiful bright shade, tied by sharp strike of "Jackson Miss. Oct. 3, 1862" ("3" inverted) circular datestamp on buff cover originating at Baton Rouge (Sep. 24, according to docketing) and addressed to Miss Jeannie Mort at Vernon Miss., from the well-known correspondence from which many Baton Rouge provisional covers emanate, small mended edge nick at top center, backflap has either been replaced or removed and reaffixed inside out

VERY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED USE OF THE BATON ROUGE ROULETTE FROM JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI. MAILED DURING THE SECOND CONFEDERATE OCCUPATION PERIOD.

Federal troops, which had occupied Baton Rouge since May 1862, evacuated the city on August 21, 1862. In their wake the Confederates maintained postal services on a restricted basis. In this instance, the rouletted stamps still on hand from the pre-May 1862 Confederate occupation were used on a letter (10c single rate) carried to Jackson, Mississippi, and posted there for Vernon. This use during re-occupation is extremely rare, and no other examples cancelled at Jackson are known.

Ex Caspary, Birkinbine, McCarren and Gross. (Image)

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 2-CENT LITHOGRAPH FROM ARKANSAS. ONLY ONE OTHER USE FROM ARKANSAS IS RECORDED IN THE WARREN CENSUS.

The census published by Dr. Daniel Warren in the Congress Book lists only two uses of the 2c Green Lithograph from Arkansas. The other is also a strip of five, ex Hessel and Dukeshire.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTRAORDINARY FRANKING FOR THE 40-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPI RATE.

This cover front is No. W6 in the Krieger census. One other cover with a similar franking is recorded from this correspondence, but the stamps are on back and there are no postal markings (possibly carried privately). A 50c "Preferred Mail" rate paid by 5c Local Prints exists, and it, too, is a front only.

Jun. 26" (1863) double-circle datestamp on adversity cover made from original broadside announcing South Carolina's secession from the Union, high-quality printing in red and blue on glazed enamel paper, addressed to Black Oak S.C., the pair is tied on blank side, cut and folded over for display, faint pencil guidelines in the shape of an envelope, small piece missing from backflap, otherwise in excellent condition

AN ASTONISHING AND EXTREMELY FINE ADVERSITY USE OF THE BROADSIDE THAT ANNOUNCED THE START OF THE CIVIL WAR.

This is the original broadside announcing the Ordinance of Secession passed by South Carolina on December 20, 1861. The portion used for this envelope includes the Palmetto flag of South Carolina, the word "Declaration" and a section of the Ordinance with the words "People of [the State of] South Carolina". The spirit of independence -- or rebellion -- that guided South Carolina's decision to secede is reflected in the year "1776" printed at upper left.
