Sale Number 1238, Lot Number 297, Formal Flag-of-Truce Mail Across the Lines10c Blue, Paterson (2), 10c Blue, Paterson (2)10c Blue, Paterson (2). Large margins all around, used with 3c Rose (65) and tied by Knoxville Tenn. Union-occupation double-circle datestamp with unclear date (ca. 1863-64), both stamps also tied by target cancels on small cover addressed to Carter's Depot Tenn. with pencil "62d Tenn Regt" , manuscript "Per Flag of Truce" and "Via Fortress Monroe" (in different hands), also "Care of Col. Crawford", exchanged via Fortress Monroe and City Point-Richmond, 10c stamp tied by "Richmond Va. Sep. 11" circular datestamp, some soiling and small stain at lower left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A BEAUTIFUL AND EXTREMELY RARE MIXED FRANKING CIVILIAN FLAG-OF-TRUCE COVER WITH THE 10-CENT PATERSON LITHOGRAPH AND U.S. 3-CENT 1861 ISSUE.

This is a fascinating use, both originating in and ending in Tennessee. It was sent from Union-controlled Knoxville to Fortress Monroe and Richmond, in order to reach Confederate East Tennessee. The distance between Knoxville and Carter's Depot (present-day Watauga, Tenn.) is a mere 125 miles, though this cover traveled much farther than that. Civilian flag-of-truce mail resumed in June 1863 with the exchange points Fortress Monroe-Old Point Comfort and City Point-Richmond.

The use of the Confederate 10c Blue Lithograph on any mixed-franking flag-of-truce cover with U.S. postage is extremely rare. Only one prisoner-of-war use is recorded (ex Walske, Siegel Sale 988, lot 190). This is the only civilian flag-of-truce use we have encountered with this combination.

Ex Kilbourne. With 1967 P.F. certificate issued to Charles Kilbourne (after private acquisition from an original find)

Jun. 16" double-circle datestamp on orange-buff cover to McKinney Tex., manuscript "Approved Sebe Hatler Maj. Gen. Commanding one Sorel Horse", cover tear affects address and censor marking, otherwise Very Fine, Sebron Hatler was a member of Alf Johnson's Texas "Spy Company," a group of guerilla fighters who attacked U.S. forces around Little Rock beginning in May 1862, his notation on this cover to his wife is a sarcastic joke (there was never a "Major General Hatler"), ex Boshwit
