Sale Number 810, Lot Number 1989, Confederate States Postmasters Provisionals (Norfolk to Thomasville)Spartanburg S.C., 5c Black entire (Unlisted), Spartanburg S.C., 5c Black entire (Unlisted)Spartanburg S.C., 5c Black entire (Unlisted). Provisional "Paid" and "5" rate handstamps applied with "Spartanburg S.C." dateless double-circle control mark on back, re-valued with "10" in circle handstamp for distance over 500 miles, "Spartanburg S.C. Oct. 30, 1861" double-circle datestamp on entire to Corp. Edward J. Dean with seven-line military address to Tudor Hall Va., ms. "Double weight" and "Due 10 cts" applied at Tudor Hall, skillfully restored with edge wear improved and mended nicks along top

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THE SPARTANBURG 5-CENTS PROVISIONAL ENTIRE, ISSUED IN OCTOBER 1861 BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF THE FIRST CONFEDERATE GENERAL ISSUE.

This cover comes from the Dean correspondence, which is known for provisional stamp usage in the fall of 1861 (Limestone Springs and Spartanburg S.C.). The control mark and up-rating from 5c to 10c are irrefutable evidence that the envelope was sold with 5c postage prepaid, then used on October 30, at which point the distance required an additional 5c. On arrival at Tudor Hall it was found to be over weight and charged 10c.

Provisional "10" in circle handstamp with "Spartanburg S.C." dateless double-circle control mark on back of entire to Edgefield C.H. S.C., "Spartanburg S.C. May 25, 1864" double-circle datestamp and "Paid" straightline, few toned spots

VERY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED SPARTANBURG 10-CENT ENTIRE, ISSUED IN 1864 DURING A SHORTAGE OF REGULAR STAMPS.

The provisional entire in the preceding lot was used in October 1861 when Spartanburg is known to have used provisional adhesive stamps. This 1864 provisional entire with the 10c rate was probably necessary at a time when stamps were unavailable. The back of the envelope has an offset impression of the "10" rate handstamp, but not of the "Paid" straightline or cds - evidence that it was prepared and sold in advance of the mailing date. The control mark is not found on handstamped Paid covers from Spartanburg.
