Confederate States
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
2179 c ImageAdams Express Co. New-Orleans Apr. Circular datestamp (with "Apr" month only, 1861 use) ties 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26) on gray lithographed American Tract Society illustrated advertising cover to Col. John Duncan at Jackson Miss., manuscript "Paid 2/-" express charge (two bits, or 25c), neatly docketed with April 25, 1861 origin date and April 26 arrival date

EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE PRECURSOR EXPRESS COMPANY COVER FROM NEW ORLEANS TO JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, CARRIED BY ADAMS EXPRESS OUTSIDE THE MAILS BEFORE JUNE 1, 1861, ENTIRELY WITHIN THE STATES IN REBELLION.

In the early months of 1861, express companies began carrying mail in anticipation of service disruptions. The Adams New Orleans marking is rare, and this beautiful cover is an extremely rare example of Adams mail carried between New Orleans and another seceded state -- the typical use is on mail to New York City or other states in the Union.

Illustrated in Chase book (p. 318). Ex Chase, Knapp, Emerson, Shenfield and Richey. With 1999 P.F. certificate (Image)

III (26), well-centered with rich color, on cover to Philadelphia Pa. with overall 7-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F7-2A, without flagstaff), "Jas. McPherson & Co. Booksellers and Stationers, Whitehall Street, Atlanta Ga." imprint (this design unlisted in C.S.A. Catalog with this imprint), exceptionally bight and fresh

2181 c Image5c Light Green, Stone 1 (1a). Large margins all around, rich color, tied by perfect strike of "Atlanta Ga. Feb. 24, 1862" circular datestamp on bright yellow cover with "Salmons & Simmons, Dealers in Staple & Fancy Goods, Atlanta Ga." green embossed cameo corner card, beautiful ornate design, addressed to the care of McWilliams & Roberts in Griffin Ga.

EXTREMELY FINE GEM STAMP ON A BEAUTIFUL AND IMMACULATE CONFEDERATE CORNER CARD COVER. ABSOLUTE PERFECTION.

The sender of this as well as the recipients must have been fastidious as we have offered another example from the same correspondence which is just as beautiful (an Atlanta Postmaster's Provisional entire). The matching color of the cameo corner card and the stamp on this cover adds to its beauty.

2182 c Image5c Green, Stone 1-2 (1). Ample margins to touched at upper right, rich color, tied by "Wilmington N.C. 5 Paid 28 Dec." modified pre-war integral-rate circular datestamp ("3" changed to "5") on buff cover with green "Confederate States of America" Allegorical River Scene and Verse Patriotic design (MS-2, Verse 8), addressed to Newbern N.C., barely reduced at left where resealed

EXTREMELY FINE. A PARTICULARLY CHOICE COVER WITH THE 5-CENT FIRST CONFEDERATE GENERAL ISSUE STAMP AND THE RARE ALLEGORICAL RIVER SCENE PATRIOTIC DESIGN.

The verse on this design is particularly fervent, with a very questionable sentiment. It reads, "Death to each marauding band, who would defile this glorious land-- The white and black man's Dixie! For e'en our slaves would take a hand, To drive the foe from Dixie!" This is by far the finer of only two examples of this design used with a general issue stamp listed in Power Search.

Exceptional intense shade and clear impression, large margins to full at top and bottom, bold Livingston Ala. circular datestamp, slight offset on back not mentioned on accompanying certificate, we noted a slight thin spot in our 2001 sale of the Hall collection but it is barely if at all detectible and also is not mentioned on the P.F. certificate

VERY FINE AND CHOICE. THE TRUE INDIGO IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CONFEDERATE COLOR VARIETIES. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES EXTANT.

Ex Knapp (acquired from the Herman collection in 1919) and Hall. With 2002 P.F. certificate (Image)

EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR TRIO OF ADVERSITY COVERS WITH THE 5-CENT DE LA RUE ISSUE, EACH MADE FROM PORTIONS OF THE SAME MULTICOLORED BROADSIDE AND SENT TO THE SAME ADDRESS.

The consignor of this lot is a long-time Charlottesville collector and he acquired these individually over a period of several decades. They are reunited here for the first time. (Image)
