Sale Number 1064, Lot Number 57, Postmasters` Provisionals: Galveston Tex. thru Montgomery Ala.Galveston Tex., 10c Black entire (98XU2), Galveston Tex., 10c Black entire (98XU2)Galveston Tex., 10c Black entire (98XU2). Perfect detailed strike of ornately-framed “PAID” handstamp depicting flowers, anchors and lyre, tying United States 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26), separate “10” numeral handstamp struck over U.S. stamp, “Galveston Tex. Jun. 4, 1860” double-circle datestamp (yeardate in error, should be 1861) on northbound cover to Miss Fannie M. Fletcher in Granville O., marked "30th"" in correspondence, fresh and clean

EXTREMELY FINE AND IMMACULATE. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING CONFEDERATE POSTMASTER PROVISIONAL COVERS AND A HIGHLIGHT OF THE WISHNIETSKY COLLECTION. THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE GALVESTON HANDSTAMPED PROVISIONAL USED WITH A UNITED STATES STAMP.

U.S. Postmaster General Montgomery Blair ordered the suspension of mail service in the seceded states, effective May 31, 1861, but northbound mail was allowed to enter until June 7, when all mail exchange between the North and South was banned. This cover was posted at Galveston on June 4, 1861 -- the 1860 year in the datestamp is in error, which is consistent with other Galveston postmarks of the period. It reached the exchange office (either in western Tennessee or at Nashville) before northbound mail forwarding was completely discontinued. The cover was franked with the 3c 1857 Issue to pay the U.S. rate. The Galveston Provisional paid the over-500 miles C.S.A. rate from Texas, which was effective June 1.

Ex Hollowbush. Accompanied by a photocopy of another cover from the same correspondence ("27th") without the Galveston provisional markings. With 1973 P.F. certificate
