VERY FINE. A REMARKABLE USE OF THE ANTEBELLUM JAMES BUCHANAN CAMPAIGN ENVELOPE IN THE CONFEDERATE MAILS DURING THE CIVIL WAR.
This type of Buchanan campaign envelope was manufactured during the Presidential Campaign of 1856, in which Buchanan was elected over John C. Fremont and former President Millard Fillmore. In this instance, it was used by a resident of Marion, Alabama, during the war. Because Buchanan was popular in the South for his political views, this might also be regarded as a patriotic use.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE CONFEDERATE MISSISSIPPI SECESSION PATRIOTIC COVER FRANKED WITH THE FIRST GENERAL ISSUE STAMP.
This outstanding design commemorates the date Mississippi seceded from the Union. Power Search contains a handful of covers bearing this design, as well as one other Mississippi secession design depicting a bale of cotton (FM-2), which is unique. This is the only example of either design bearing a Confederate stamp we have offered since keeping computerized records.
VERY FINE. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING CAMEO CORNER CARD ILLUSTRATED DESIGNS BEARING A CONFEDERATE STAMP WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED.
