Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1551, Patriotics–Handstamped Paid and Due Markings: Davis-Stephens and Davis MedallionsTaylortown La. Oct. 11 (1861), Taylortown La. Oct. 11 (1861)Taylortown La. Oct. 11 (1861). Circular datestamp with date and "5" rate in manuscript, "PAID" in oval handstamp on cover to Landry La. with Jefferson Davis Medallion, Single-Star Flag at Right, 11-Star Flag at Left and 8-Star Sunburst Patriotic design (JD-5), small tear at top left above the design, speckled splatter spots

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS JEFFERSON DAVIS MEDALLION IS ONE OF THE RAREST CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC DESIGNS, AND THE FIRST WE HAVE OFFERED IN ONE OF OUR AUCTIONS.

This is one of the rarest of the Jefferson Davis Medallions. This design (JD-5) and the similar single-Star flag design offered in lots 1458 and 1495 (JD-4) are much cruder than the other Davis Medallion designs (JD-1 thru JD-3). The likeness of the first and only Confederate States president is far less accurate than in the other designs, and contains the slogan "The Right Man in the Right Place" above the portrait instead of "Confederate States of America". This is the only example we have offered in our auctions since 1993 and our Rarities sales since 1964.

Illustrated in Wishnietsky's Confederate Patriotic Covers and Their Usages on p. 125. Ex Walcott and Matthies, where acquired by the Kilbournes in the 1968 sale of her Confederate Patriotics (Siegel Sale 337, lot 855)
