These new discoveries are good examples of adversity usage of handstamped Provisional covers. The 5¢ stamp paid the postage to have this cover sent in the mails not the ATLANTA, GEO., PAID 5 handstamped provisional. The Surveys of the Confederate Postmasters' Provisionals, page 689, shows a total of 4 recorded for this type.

The difference between the handstamped provisional envelopes and the handstamped and manuscript rate markings used by the vast majority of postmasters was that all provisional were prepared in an advance of use.
