Sale Number 1225, Lot Number 44, Handstamped Paid and Due MarkingsPine Level Ala. Paid 5, Pine Level Ala. Paid 5Pine Level Ala. Paid 5. Negative letters in circular ornamental brass handstamp, complete and bold strike -- the "5" and "ALA" at center showing little detail, but "PINE LEVEL" and "PAID" are clearly defined -- on buff cover to Madisonville Tenn., manuscript "Nov 18" (1861) date, small faint stain spots

VERY FINE EXAMPLE OF THIS EXTREMELY RARE HANDSTAMPED "PAID", WHICH IS ONE OF THE FEW NEGATIVE TOWN MARKINGS USED IN THE CONFEDERACY.

The extreme rarity of the Pine Level handstamp -- only three are believed to exist -- makes it impossible to draw any definite conclusions regarding its status; however, it is possible that the marking was applied to envelopes in advance of sale and, if so, they could be classified as a postmaster's provisional.
