Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 265, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, "TEN" (9), 10c Blue, "TEN" (9)10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Horizontal strip of seven, large margins all around, tied by five strikes of "Darlington C.H. S.C. Jun. 2" (ca. 1863) circular datestamp on large blue courthouse cover to Marianna Fla., court docketing at left also ties end stamp in strip, light bend thru center stamp, couple tiny scrapes in margins, cover has typical edgewear and faint stains, but this artifact is in its original condition as discovered

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST USED MULTIPLE OF THE RARE 10-CENT "TEN" ISSUE ON OR OFF COVER -- NO OTHER COMES CLOSE TO THIS STRIP'S SIZE OR QUALITY. IN OUR OPINION, THIS COVER IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING ITEMS IN CONFEDERATE PHILATELY.

A photograph of this extraordinary cover appears in the 1929 Dietz book (page 275), and its existence is noted among the listings for the 10c "TEN" issue. However, the cover was previously owned by Edward S. Knapp and was sold to John H. Hall after Knapp's Confederate collection was dispersed privately -- where it remained for more than 50 years until sold by Siegel in 2000 to Lincoln Kilbourne (Sale 823, lot 501).

The strip shows the erratic alignment of the entries on the "TEN" plate, with the center stamp significantly higher than the others in the row. The difficulty Archer & Daly experienced laying out the "TEN" plate is probably due to the absence of transfer guide dots. The subsequent Frameline plate was etched with lines to facilitate uniform spacing and alignment.

Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 266, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, "TEN" (9), 10c Blue, "TEN" (9)10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Full margins, lightly creased and slight edge toning, tied by "Richmond Va. Jun. 30" (1863) circular datestamp on yellow cover to Hanover C.H. Va. with Mounted Dragoon and Verse Patriotic design (SM-1, Verse 13), few toning specks

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE "TEN" USE ON A PATRIOTIC COVER.

The 10c "Ten" Issue is very rare on Patriotic covers. The few examples in Power Search are on the common 11-Star Flag design (F11-16). This use on the Mounted Dragoon design is much more desirable.

Ex Plass and Kilbourne. With 1966 P.F. certificate. Scott value $3,500.00

Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 272, Engraved Issues (Scott 8-10)10c Blue, "TEN" (9), 10c Blue, "TEN" (9)10c Blue, "TEN" (9). Large margins, light pre-use vertical crease, tied by "Richmond Va. Sep. 13" circular datestamp on prisoner-of-war buff cover to Fancy Grove Va. endorsed "By Flag of Truce via Fortress Monroe, care Maj. Jno. E. Mulford", clear strike of "Prisoner's Letter Examined. Fort Delaware Del." (Ty. I) oval handstamp, U.S. postage paid by 3c Rose (65), couple tiny edge flaws, tied by target cancel, "Delaware City Del. Aug. 29" circular datestamp, some staining near bottom and slight overall soiling

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE USE OF THE 10-CENT "TEN" GENERAL ISSUE STAMP ON A MIXED-FRANKING PRISONER-OF-WAR COVER. THIS IS THE FINEST OF ONLY THREE FULL COVER USES KNOWN TO US.

We record only three "TEN" general issue stamps on prisoner-of-war covers plus a front only (used from Point Lookout). Of the other full covers, one is faulty with tears, stains, and a replaced backflap (used from Johnson's Island). The other has a "TEN" stamp that has been trimmed to shape (used from Fort Delaware). This cover, with only slight cosmetic issues, is the finest of the three.
