VERY FINE. A UNIQUE FIRST DAY COVER OF THE CONFEDERATE POSTAL SYSTEM WITH A RARE JEFFERSON DAVIS MEDALLION PATRIOTIC DESIGN AND A UNITED STATES STAMP "NOT RECOGNIZED" FOR POSTAGE.
This is one of the rarest Davis Medallion Patriotic designs. This design (JD-4) and the similar single-Star flag design offered in lot 1551 (JD-5) are much cruder than the other Davis Medallion designs. The likeness of the first and only Confederate States president is far less accurate than in the other designs (JD-1 thru JD-3), and contains the slogan "The Right Man in the Right Place" above the portrait instead of "Confederate States of America". Its use on the first day of the Confederate postal system is extraordinary.
