EXTREMELY FINE. A SPECTACULAR CAPTURED UNION PATRIOTIC COVER WITH A RARE DESIGN, A BEAUTIFUL CONFEDERATE GENERAL ISSUE STAMP AND A SCARCE BLUE RICHMOND POSTMARK.

Examples of the Richmond post office's dateless circle in blue are reported on covers from May-June 1863. This cover combines everything that can be desired in a postal history artifact from the Civil War. This is a rare Union Patriotic design that would be very desirable as an ordinary piece of U.S. mail. As a Confederate captured use, with a scarce Richmond postmark and the scarce Milky Blue shade of the 10c Engraved stamp, it is immensely more desirable.
