EXTREMELY FINE STRIKE. ONE OF THE FINEST OF THE RARE JONESBORO HANDSTAMPED PROVISIONALS. ONLY TEN EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED IN BLUE.

Jonesboro (also spelled Jonesborough) is Tennessee’s oldest town and was originally part of North Carolina. It was one of the towns in eastern Tennessee that joined to form the State of Franklin, which never received congressional approval. Jonesboro was the source of abolitionist activity before the war, and many residents remained pro-Union even after Tennessee joined the Confederate States.

The Crown survey counts fifteen examples of the Jonesboro provisional entire, including five struck in Black (45XU1) and ten in Dark Blue (45XU2). Some of these, such as the example offered here, do not have any town datestamp.
