Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 149, C.S.A. Patriotic Covers"Our Homes" Confederate Patriotic Design, "Our Homes" Confederate Patriotic Design"Our Homes" Confederate Patriotic Design. Unused cover with red, blue and black "Our Homes" and "Protection" Pictorial Confederate Patriotic design (MS-3), remarkable detailed allegorical scene of Confederate soldier defending family and country at top with 11-Star Flag and full horn of plenty, and Northerner at bottom with broken bust of Abraham Lincoln, "taxation" and slave with U.S. flag and empty horn of plenty, fresh with only very minor small toned specks at right

VERY FINE. ONE OF ONLY A HANDFUL OF EXAMPLES -- EITHER USED OR UNUSED -- OF THIS FASCINATING AND ELABORATELY DESIGNED PICTORIAL PATRIOTIC COVER.

Among Confederate Patriotic cover designs, the two which stand out most prominently, due to their exceptional imagery and messages, are the "Hanging Lincoln" design and this "Our Homes" design. There are only two recorded used examples of this design, which are ex Dr. Brandon (Sale 1087, lot 109) and ex Kilbourne (Sale 1186, lot 557). This is one of probably fewer than five unused examples. At least two of the other unused covers show more significant toning.
