The William H. Gross Collection: United States Postal History
c
Sale Number 1211, Lot Number 395, Civil War Postal History, Bicolored Confederate advertising cover from Texas with a pair of the 5¢ Blue Local Print

5¢ Blue, Local (7), horizontal pair, clear to large margins, tied by "Palestine Tex. Mar. 9" circular datestamp on John Gooch's Law & Collection Exchange overall illustrated advertising cover, lovely design in gray with woodcut vignette in green, showing farmer, livestock, Indian, train and mountains in background, text in frame at left in green reads "Claims collected in Eastern and Middle Texas. Remittances Promptly Made in Sight Drafts on Galveston, New Orleans, or New York"

Very Fine appearance; cover reduced at top with staining along a small tear, also a small tear at right and right stamp with creases.

One of the most stunning Confederate illustrated designs in existence--reminiscent of obsolete currency of the period as well as the Confederate Montgomery $500 note. This is the only example we have encountered among the tiny population with this design that is franked with Confederate adhesive stamps. It would make the perfect "page" with the cover in lot 394, the same design in different colors.

Ex Van Dyk MacBride and Rex H. Felton.

Sale Number 1208, Lot Number 173, Captured Union Patriotics5c Blue, Local (7), 5c Blue, Local (7)5c Blue, Local (7). Horizontal pair, large to full margins, tied by blue Dublin Va. circular datestamp with unclear date (ca. 1864) on buff captured Union Patriotic cover depicting Col. J. T. Toland, addressed to Wytheville Va. to Captain M. B. Tate (of the 1st Va. Regt.), manuscript "O.B." official business endorsement at top, slightly reduced at top and part of backflap removed, Very Fine and a fascinating use, Union Col. John T. Toland led a famous raid on the Confederate town of Wytheville Va. on July 18, 1863, his 800-man mounted brigade was sent to capture the town due to its strategic importance for mining, telegraph wires and a railroad line, the raid was a debacle for Union forces and Toland was killed in the battle, this design depicting the martyred Toland used with Confederate postage to the town where his raid took place is remarkable, ex Walske, with 2000 P.S.E. certificate

Sale Number 1208, Lot Number 174, Captured Union Patriotics5c Blue, Local (7), 5c Blue, Local (7)5c Blue, Local (7). Horizontal pair, margins to touched at left, tied by "Culpeper C.H. Va. Jun. 4" circular datestamp on cover to Mt. Clifton Va. with a striking captured Union abolitionist cartoon, a biting satirical illustration and caption in purple, depicting a slave tied to a pole and being whipped, with the caption "The persuasive eloquence of the Sunny South", King & Baird Philadelphia imprint, pair has minor gum toning at top and pre-use crease

VERY FINE. AN EXCEPTIONAL ABOLITIONIST DESIGN WITH STARTLING IMAGERY OF A BOUND SLAVE SUFFERING UNDER THE WHIP -- AND IRONICALLY USED IN THE CONFEDERACY. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EXAMPLES OF CONFEDERATE USE OF A CAPTURED UNION ABOLITIONIST OR PATRIOTIC COVER.

The horrifying images of the whip-scarred back of the slave known as Gordon were first published in Harper's Weekly on July 4, 1863 (see Siegel Sale 1037, lot 2869). An example of the most famous carte-de-visite of Gordon is offered as lot 175 in this sale. While it cannot be proven that the drawing on this abolitionist cover was inspired by the Gordon images, this does bear a striking resemblance to that man, who became a pivotal figure in exposing the brutality of slavery. Its use on a cover with the stately Jefferson Davis portrait on a pair of Confederate 5c Local prints is particularly noteworthy.

Ex Brooks, Finney and Dr. Green. With 2000 C.S.A. certificate

High," and, in answer to the enforcement of the laws message printed on the cover, "not by Lincon" (misspelling the President's name), cover wear and small edge tears, most of backflap missing, Very Fine appearance, a wonderful example of a Union Patriotic cover captured on the first day of a major battle -- with Confederate sentiments written over the design -- the Second Battle of Murfreesboro, also known as the Battle of Stones River, was fought from Dec. 31, 1862, to Jan. 3, 1863; of the major battles during the Civil War it had the highest percentage of casualties on both sides

Sale Number 1208, Lot Number 179, Captured Union Patriotics5c Blue, Local (7), 5c Blue, Local (7)5c Blue, Local (7). Horizontal pair, tied by unusually clear strike of "Richmond Va. Jul. 18, 1863" circular datestamp on captured Union Patriotic cover depicting an elephant with a banner reading "Where is Beauregard? Express from Fort Donelson", addressed to Society Hill S.C., overall wear and slight staining, pair with light crease and toning, Fine appearing and rare captured use of this design, there are various meanings that might be ascribed to this design, a popular 19th Century phrase "to see the elephant" refers to gaining experience at significant cost and was often used in relation to war -- it could be interpreted here to imply that Beauregard's troops will "see the elephant" when they encounter Union forces and suffer a heavy defeat, signed Brian Green
