536 c Image"Mound City Ark. May 14" (1861). Manuscript postmark with penstrokes cancelling 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26) on red and blue 9-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic cover (F9-1) to Trenton Ark., stamp with some soiling, overall cover wear

FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE OF THE 9-STAR FLAG PATRIOTIC DESIGNS. THE ARKANSAS ORIGIN ADDS TO ITS RARITY AND DESIRABILITY.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag designs (7 thru 13 stars). Surviving examples are rare and are normally found with the F9-2 design (see lot 569). This flag (F9-1) is on a similar order of rarity to the other listed 9-Star design (F9-4). This is also a very rare Arkansas Independent State use of U.S. postage. Arkansas seceded on May 6 and was admitted to the Confederacy on May 18, so this use was possible for only 12 days. (Image)
