Clear strikes of "Paid 3" U.S. rate, "Fort Valley Ga." control circle and revalued with a "5" handstamp on orange cover to Eufala Ala., with contents datelined "Fort Valley July 6th 1861", some edgewear and soiling

VERY FINE STRIKE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE FORT VALLEY 3-CENT PROVISIONAL ENTIRE -- UNLISTED IN SCOTT OR DIETZ. THIS MAY BE UNIQUE REVALUED TO 5 CENTS.

The 3c provisionals issued by postmasters in Confederate States prior to the establishment of the Confederate postal system were recently classified as a separate group in the Scott Catalogue. The presence of the dateless circular control mark establishes this entire's provisional status beyond doubt. A second example of the "Paid 3" used on April 12, 1851 (obviously not revalued to 5c) was offered in our sale of the Hall collection. A third without the control mark and dated March 19, 1861, was offered in our 1970 Kohn sale.

With 2012 C.S.A. certificate
