Sale Number 1182, Lot Number 256, Confederate and Civil War: Postmasters' Provisionals (Jonesboro Tenn. thru Nashville Tenn.)Nashville Tenn., 5c Violet Brown, Tete-Beche Pair (61X5a), Nashville Tenn., 5c Violet Brown, Tete-Beche Pair (61X5a)Nashville Tenn., 5c Violet Brown, Tete-Beche Pair (61X5a). Vertical foot to foot pair -- Positions 4 over 6 in adjacent stereotype impressions, clear margins, repairs with small portions of design replaced, broken horizontal crease near center of pair is separated and repaired

FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF FOUR RECORDED USED TETE-BECHE PAIRS OF THE NASHVILLE 5-CENT VIOLET BROWN PROVISIONAL.

Peter Powell's study of the 5c Nashville (“Plating the Nashville Provisional”, Confederate Philatelist, January- March 2008) concluded that stereotype groups of six units, three wide by two tall, were used to build up the printing plates. Based on plate flaws unique to specific positions, Powell also concluded that the plate size was no less than 18 subjects, made from at least three six-unit stereotype groups, and that more than one plate was made. The tete-beche arrangement in printed sheets occurred when one impression was made, then the sheet was turned 180 degrees, and a second impression was made
