Sale Number 1196, Lot Number 996, Confederate States: Handstamped Paid and DueCorinth Miss. Jul. 3 (1861), Corinth Miss. Jul. 3 (1861)Corinth Miss. Jul. 3 (1861). Bold strike of circular datestamp with "PAID 5" in oval handstamp on cover to Pleasant Hill Ala. with red and blue 10-Star Confederate Flag, Liberty Cap and "T" for "Tennessee" Patriotic design (F10-7), missing backflap and small edge nicks, small tear at left

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS 10-STAR PATRIOTIC DESIGN, WITH THE "T" FOR TENNESSEE (IN ERROR) IS EXTREMELY RARE -- MUCH RARER THAN THE 11-STAR FLAG WITH THE SAME DESIGN.

The 10-Star flags began with the admission of North Carolina to the Confederacy and ended with the admission of Tennessee (May 27 to July 2, 1861). The matching 11-Star design (F11-8) with the "T" for Tennessee is relatively scarce, but this design, with only 10 stars, is very rare (the previous version of this design, F9-1, lacks the central star and "T"). It may be that the printer was not aware of the admission of North Carolina. Whatever the reason, this design represents a fascinating error.

Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1558, Patriotics–Handstamped Paid and Due Markings: State & Allegorical DesignsCorinth Miss. Nov. 16 (1861), Corinth Miss. Nov. 16 (1861)Corinth Miss. Nov. 16 (1861). Circular datestamp with "PAID/5" in oval handstamp on cover to Huntsville Ala. with green "Confederate States of America" Allegorical River Scene and Verse Patriotic design (MS-2, Verse 8), sealed vertical tear at bottom middle, slightly reduced at right

VERY FINE. THIS ALLEGORICAL RIVER SCENE IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS.

The verse on this design is particularly fervent, with a very questionable sentiment. It reads, "Death to each marauding band, who would defile this glorious land-- The white and black man's Dixie! For e'en our slaves would take a hand, To drive the foe from Dixie!"
