Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1465, Patriotics–Independent and Confederate State Use of U.S. StampsBrownsville Ten. Apr. 17 (1861), Brownsville Ten. Apr. 17 (1861)Brownsville Ten. Apr. 17 (1861). Partly clear strike of circular datestamp ties 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26) on cover to Philadelphia Pa. with overall 7-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F7-2B, with the flagstaff), second strike on back, barely reduced at right

VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING CONFEDERATE STATE USE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 ISSUE ON AN OVERALL 7-STAR PATRIOTIC COVER, MAILED FROM SOUTH TO NORTH. RARELY FOUND IN THIS CHOICE CONDITION.

The F7-2B design contains a prominent flagstaff, in contrast to F7-2A which lacks the flagstaff. Collectors of Confederate Civil War postal history know that the stamps and envelopes are rarely found in sound condition. Most 3c U.S. stamps on Confederate Patriotic covers have varying degrees of faults. The stamp on this cover is sound and the blue color of the star panel is particularly deep.

With 1987 P.F. certificate
