Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 306, Engraved Issues (Scott 11-13)20c Green, Diagonal Half (13d), 20c Green, Diagonal Half (13d)20c Green, Diagonal Half (13d). Four halves -- bisected from two 20c stamps (two at left from one, and two at right from the other) -- paying 40c Trans-Mississippi Express Rate on piece with manuscript route directive "Express via Shreveport La." at upper right, each pair of bisects tied by clear strike of "Tyler Tex. May 9" (1864) circular datestamp, "JUN/30" handstamp (probably applied on arrival east of the Mississippi River based on the date), affixed to a 3c Red Nesbitt entire that closely matches the laid lines and shade of piece, an address has been added to recreate cover

VERY FINE PIECE. AN EXTRAORDINARY CONFEDERATE FRANKING WITH FOUR HALVES OF TWO BISECTED 20-CENT GENERAL ISSUE STAMPS, PAYING THE 40-CENT TRANS-MISSISSIPPI EXPRESS RATE.

The writing of the sender's route directive very closely matches the writing on a cover from the Dr. Starr correspondence, which was sent from Tyler, Texas (Siegel Sale 1016, lot 579). The logical explanation for this cover is that the sender prepared bisects for the prevailing 10c rate, but used four of them to pay the 40c Trans-Mississippi Express rate on this piece of mail.

Ex Haas and Dr. Brandon. With 1980 and 2014 P.F. certificates
