VERY FINE. A SPECTACULAR AND RARE USE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 ISSUE ON A PATRIOTIC COVER TO ALGERIA. ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING 3-CENT PATRIOTIC COVERS IN EXISTENCE.

The rates to Algeria were the same as those to France -- at this time the treaty rate was 15c. This cover, used in August 1861 from Old Point Comfort, is a remarkable and unique Civil War era artifact.
