Sale Number 795, Lot Number 36, Key Dates of the ConfederacyCorinth Miss. May 31 (1861) - Last Day of United States Postal Service in the Confederacy, Corinth Miss. May 31 (1861) - Last Day of United States Postal Service in the ConfederacyCorinth Miss. May 31 (1861) - Last Day of United States Postal Service in the Confederacy. Bold balloon-style circular datestamp on red and blue Davis-Stephens 10-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic cover to another Mississippi town, no rate indicated (May 31st was the last day U.S. 3c rate applied), with original soldier's letter written datelined Corinth, May 31, 1861, on red and blue "The Southerner's Banner Song Sheet with 11-Star Confederate Flag, "T" for Tennessee and eleventh star at center, R. C. Hite imprint, three short edge tears neatly sealed with archival tape

EXTREMELY FINE AND OUTSTANDING USE OF THIS RARE DAVIS-STEPHENS 10-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG PATRIOTIC WITH MATCHING SONG SHEET ENCLOSURE. DATED ONE DAY PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF CONFEDERATE POSTAL SERVICE.

Very few examples of this Davis-Stephens 10-Star Confederate Flag patriotic design are known. The tenth star represents North Carolina, which seceded on May 20th and was admitted to the Confederate States on May 27th. The eleventh star with "T" on the song sheet represents Tennessee, which was admitted as a Confederate State on May 16th, subject to the ratification election on June 24th (ordinance of secession May 6th, popular vote June 8th, ratification June 24th).

The absence of a rate marking is another unusual and interesting feature. A cover is known from Corinth postmarked June 1st, the first day of the Confederate postal system, with a "Paid" and "3" cent rate crossed out and re-rated "5". Our theory regarding the absence of a rate marking is that the Corinth postmaster anticipated the June 1st change but was uncertain whether or not mail prepaid at the U.S. 3c rate should be marked as such
