Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 231, Lithographed Issues (Scott 5)10c Rose (5), 10c Rose (5)10c Rose (5). A phenomenal stamp with full corner sheet margins and huge margins all around, small sealed margin tear, faint pre-use crease and minor gum soaks, paying new 10c rate and tied by "Salisbury N.C. Jul. 10, 1861 [sic]" circular datestamp -- used in 1862, but the old year date left in place -- on small prisoner's cover to Elias Dill in Gray, Maine, endorsed "From a prisoner of war", manuscript "ExNK" and "W B Haslett" examiners' marks, manuscript "Due 3" for unpaid U.S. postage

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARING AND SPECTACULAR STAMP. ONE OF THREE RECORDED PRISONER-OF-WAR COVERS WITH THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH. ONE OF THE OTHERS, KNOWN TO ANTRIM AND PICTURED IN HIS BOOK, WAS DESCRIBED AS "PERHAPS THE MOST DESIRABLE OF ALL THE CONFEDERATE PRISONER-OF-WAR COVERS", AN OPINION THAT CERTAINLY APPLIES TO THIS COVER.

This cover is offered with original letter enclosure, datelined "Salisbury N.C. June 20, '62", written by Major Daniel M. Dill to his father. Military service records sourced from the internet report: Major Dill entered service as private; promoted to Corporal, Dec. 26, 1861; taken prisoner at Fair Oaks Va., May 31, 1862; confined in Libby Prison, Salisbury, N.C, and Belle Isle in the James River opposite Richmond; exchanged Sep. 15, 1862. He was promoted to Captain in the 6th Regiment, U. S. Volunteers, Sep. 1, 1863; to Major of U. S. Volunteers by brevet, Mar. 13, 1865; mustered out at Wilmington, N. C, Sep. 20, 1865.

Major Dill's letter notes that living conditions in Salisbury prison were acceptable. At this point Salisbury held no more than 600 prisoners, who were well-fed and housed in decent quarters. Two years later, 10,000 prisoners arrived and turned Salisbury into the "Most lothsome dunguns in Rebeldom". Major Dill informs his father to leave envelopes unsealed for censoring by U.S. authorities.

We record only three 10c Rose lithographs on prisoner-of-war covers (not counting civilian flag-of-truce covers or a single turned cover re-mailed with a 10c Rose). Each of the three was sent from Salisbury Prison (see Sales 1208, lot 296 and 1087, lot 581). Ex Freeman

EXTREMELY FINE. ONE OF THE FINEST 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH COVERS ORIGINATING IN TEXAS, OF WHICH FEWER THAN A HALF-DOZEN ARE KNOWN.

Our Levi records contain five 10c Rose (any shade) covers from Texas, of which only one is in condition anywhere near comparable to the cover offered here. This cover to Jose San Roman, a well-known blockade-runner and supplier to the Confederate government, was postmarked at Victoria on March 22, 1863, just eight days before one of the two known Victoria postmaster's provisional covers was mailed, to Jose San Roman (ex Kilbourne and "D.K." collections, last offered in Siegel Sale 1022, lot 1123).
