John H. Reagan.
Postmaster General of the Confederate States, clear signature at Richmond on January 13, 1864 postmaster appointment (13.75 x 8.3 in.) for William C. Brown at Cork, Florida, some expert restoration along edges, reinforced folds
VERY FINE APPEARANCE AND EXTREMELY RARE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF A FLORIDA CONFEDERATE POSTMASTER'S COMMISSION.
The Briggs census records only one cover with a Confederate Cork Fla. postmark (manuscript), and it is held in an institutional collection.
