New Orleans 21 Mar. (1861).
Circular datestamp ties 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26)
on cover to Raleigh N.C. with black Jefferson Davis Medallion and 8 Stars Patriotic design
(JD-4), notation on back indicates letter enclosure was dated Mar. 21, 1861 (no longer present), stamp with faulty perfs at right, small edge tear at top just into stars of design, faint toning
VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN OUTSTANDING CONFEDERATE STATE USE OF U.S. POSTAGE ON A JEFFERSON DAVIS PATRIOTIC COVER.
This is one of the rarest Davis medallion Patriotic designs. Its use with the U.S. 3c 1857 Issue from Confederate New Orleans makes it particularly desirable.
