EXTREMELY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE CHARLESTON S.C. 5-CENT BLUE ON BLUE PROVISIONAL ENVELOPE. ONLY TWELVE COMPLETE ENVELOPES ARE RECORDED.

The census published by Richard L. Calhoun (Confederate Philatelist, Jan.-Feb. 1989) lists twelve Blue on Blue envelopes, including one front only. Another envelope was offered in the sale of the James E. Hughes collection (Schuyler Rumsey, Apr. 22, 2010, lot 1393), bringing the total of complete Blue on Blue envelopes to twelve. The total number of provisional envelopes on any kind of paper is 70. In our opinion, the Scott value of $3,000.00, which is assigned equally to the Blue and the other colors -- Buff, Amber, Orange and White -- reflects neither the distinctiveness of the Blue envelope color nor the 6-to-1 ratio of all others versus the Blue.

Ex Wiseman and Hill. Signed Ashbrook. With 1998 P.F. certificate
