Scott No. 16XU2; $2,250.

When the Confederacy took control of the mail system on 1 June 1861, there were no stamps available. To meet the demand for this convenience, some postmasters prepared substitutes in the form of stamps, printed envelopes, and handstamped envelopes.

The Charleston, S.C. typographed entires were printed by Evans & Cogswell Company of Charleston on envelopes of various colors and placed on sale 15 August 1861.

The south will be the most prosperous nation on earth, after she achieves her Independence, and that is near at hand. The planters hare everything to hope in the future, as their property will be placed on firm foundation under our new Government…I send mail today - some newspapers with the latest war news…", Very Fine.
