Horizontal pair, large to huge margins, rich color on deeply blued paper, tied by "New Orleans La. 5 Nov." (1861) circular datestamp on cover to Red Oak Grove Va. with commission merchant's green lithographed overall advertisement (imprint of New York City printer on back) and surprinted on back with red and blue 11-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F11-11), slightly reduced at right, two small scuff spots in cover, slight creasing between stamps from application

EXTREMELY FINE. A REMARKABLE DUAL ADVERTISING AND 11-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG PATRIOTIC COVER, USED WITH A SUPERB PAIR OF THE NEW ORLEANS 5-CENT PROVISIONAL.

We are aware of ten or fewer patriotic covers with the 5c New Orleans provisional stamp, including red and blue Flag and Cannon designs and the unique "Soldier" design in black (offered in Kilbourne Part One, Sale 1186, lot 554). The 11-Star Confederate flag surprinted on the back of this advertising cover is a distinctive design with an unusual pattern of stars. It also exists in an earlier form (F10-16) with ten stars (the eleventh was added to the center). Very few examples are known.

VERY FINE. A COLORFUL AND EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE NEW ORLEANS 5-CENT PROVISIONAL ON A CONFEDERATE 11-STAR FLAG PATRIOTIC COVER.

We are aware of ten or fewer patriotic covers with the 5c New Orleans provisional stamp, including red and blue Flag and Cannon designs and the unique "Soldier" design in black (offered in Kilbourne Part One). The 11-Star Flag on this cover is a modification of an earlier 10-Star design (F10-16), with the center star added. The predecessor 10-Star design is also known used with a New Orleans 5c Provisional from the same writer (ex D.K. collection, Siegel Sale 1022, lot 1091).

Ample margins to clear, intense color, tied by "PAID" straightline with matching "New Orleans La. 10 Sep." (1861) circular datestamp on buff cover to Pass Christian Miss., mostly clear strike of red "Regular Vicksburg & Bend Packet/ Mary E. Keene./ W.B. Richardson Master" oval name-of-boat handstamp, glue outline of a Half Dime at lower left, clearly showing the mirror-image of the lettering, a representative Half Dime accompanies, as does a second March 1862 cover bearing 5c Green, Stone 1-2 (1) to the same addressee in New Orleans, full margins and beautiful color, packet boat usage cancelled upon arrival, both covers with manuscript "Lizzie" docketing at left

VERY FINE AND EXTREMELY RARE. ONE OF THE FEW KNOWN NEW ORLEANS PROVISIONAL COVERS WITH A NAME-OF-BOAT MISSISSIPPI RIVER PACKET MARKING AND ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE WITH THE U.S. HALF-DIME OUTLINE, WHICH THE SENDER AFFIXED TO PAY THE POSTAGE.

While Confederate riverboat mail was prolific prior to Federal control of the Mississippi River, examples of New Orleans provisionals with name-of-boat markings are extremely rare. We are aware of three different: the "Packet Mary E. Keene" offered here, "Steamer Genl. Quitman" and the "Sallie Robinson". Glue outlines of Half Dimes are rarely encountered on Civil War covers, and when present they are normally on flag-of-truce covers in an attempt to pay U.S. postage. This use to pay Confederate postage in September 1861 is remarkable.

The Postmaster's Provisional cover ex Weatherly (acquired by the Kilbournes privately from Earl Weatherly in 1963). The 5c Lithograph cover ex Caspary.
