Large margins just touching tips of ornaments, intense shade and impression, natural vertical crease caused by gum, tied by bold "Pittsylvania C.H. Va. 9 Oct." (1861) circular datestamp on blue-lined folded cover (two flaps removed) to Secretary of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Richmond, neat "Ansd." docketing ties stamp, bottom edge of cover at left has minor sealed tear

EXTREMELY FINE. THE ONLY RECTANGULAR-CUT EXAMPLE OF THE THREE RECORDED PITTSYLVANIA COURT HOUSE 5-CENT PROVISIONAL STAMPS ON LAID PAPER. ONE OF THE RAREST AND MOST OUTSTANDING OF ALL CONFEDERATE PROVISIONALS.

The description of the previous lot provides details of the ten Pittsylvania C.H. provisionals known on wove paper. Only three 5c stamps are recorded on laid paper. These are: 1) CR Ty. I, cover to Secretary of the Commonwealth, Oct. 9, offered here; 2) CS Ty. I, cover to Geo. Rives, Feb. 1862, Siegel 1983 Rarities sale; and 3) CS Ty. II, cover to Wm. T. Law, Dec. 20, Siegel 1982 Rarities sale. The date pattern does not indicate a specific time period for laid paper, and it is likely that the wove and laid papers were used interchangeably during the printing.
