Horizontal strip of seven, large margins all around, tied by five strikes of "Darlington C.H. S.C. Jun. 2" circular datestamp on large blue courthouse cover to Marianna Fla., court docketing at left also ties end stamp in strip, light bend thru center stamp, couple tiny scrapes in margins, cover has typical edge wear and faint stains, but this artifact is in its original condition as discovered

EXTREMELY FINE. THIS IS THE LARGEST USED MULTIPLE OF THE RARE 10-CENT "TEN" ISSUE ON OR OFF COVER -- NO OTHER COMES CLOSE TO THIS STRIP'S SIZE OR QUALITY. IN OUR OPINION, THIS COVER IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING ITEMS IN CONFEDERATE PHILATELY, AND IT IS OFFERED FOR THE FIRST TIME AT AUCTION SINCE ITS DISCOVERY NEARLY A CENTURY AGO.

A photograph of this extraordinary cover appears in the 1929 Dietz book (page 275), and its existence is noted among the listings for the 10c "TEN" issue. However, the cover was previously owned by Edward S. Knapp and was sold to John H. Hall after Knapp's Confederate collection was dispersed privately. Therefore, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first offering of this cover at public auction.

Ex Knapp.
