VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE AND CHOICE COVER FROM MONTEREY, MEXICO, TO CONFEDERATE SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, VIA EAGLE PASS.
The Eagle Pass post office was the drop point for mail from Mexico to the Confederate States that crossed the Rio Grande further up the river near Piedras Negras. The typical franking is a pair of the 5c Blue Typograph stamps as seen here. This cover is especially desirable as it entered and received postmarks in the Mexican mails.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE 9-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG PATRIOTIC DESIGN.
The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag designs (7 thru 13 stars). They are extremely rare.
