Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 84, Postmasters' Provisionals (Anderson C.H. thru Charleston)Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire (16XU4), Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire (16XU4)Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire (16XU4). Woodcut press-printed provisional at upper right corner of light buff envelope, "Charleston S.C. Nov. 12, 1861" double-circle datestamp and used to Darlington S.C., few small opening tears at top and missing part of top flap

VERY FINE. THIS IS THE LATEST REPORTED USE OF THE 5-CENT TYPOGRAPHED PROVISIONAL ENVELOPES.

The earliest reported use of the 5c provisional envelopes is August 16, 1861; an estimated 5,000 were prepared. By November 1861 the supply was exhausted. No more were printed because the government-issued stamps were expected shortly and the adhesive provisionals were still available. This is the latest reported use.

Ex Calhoun and illustrated in his Charleston book on p. 48.

Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 85, Postmasters' Provisionals (Anderson C.H. thru Charleston)Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire plus "Paid 5" Handstamp for 10c Rate (16XU4 var), Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire plus "Paid 5" Handstamp for 10c Rate (16XU4 var)Charleston S.C., 5c Blue on Buff entire plus "Paid 5" Handstamp for 10c Rate (16XU4 var). Woodcut press-printed provisional at upper right corner of light buff envelope (closer to manila), "Charleston S.C. Aug. 26, 1861" double-circle datestamp, addressed to Savannah Ga. (partly scratched out), bold strike of "Paid 5" in circle handstamp used to make a 10c entire, slightly reduced at left

FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT CHARLESTON POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL WITH A "PAID 5" MARKING USED TO CREATE A 10-CENT ENTIRE. THIS IS THE FINER OF THE TWO RECORDED EXAMPLES.

The 10c Palmetto Tree Charleston Provisional (Scott 16XU6) is unique, and was used in July 1862 during a shortage of General Issues. The press-printed typographic provisional envelopes were issued in the summer of 1861, probably close to the earliest known date of August 16 (Calhoun census). The lithographed adhesive provisional stamp followed in early September 1861. During the period when this was used there were no adhesive stamps available to make up the 10c double rate, so the "Paid 5" handstamp was used. The other recorded example is seriously defective. None of the regular 5c entires or adhesive provisional covers have the "Paid 5" in circle; therefore, it is certain that it was used on this entire as a means of uprating the postage.
