Sale Number 1153, Lot Number 2151, Patriotic CoversMonticello Flor. Nov. 4 (1861), Monticello Flor. Nov. 4 (1861)Monticello Flor. Nov. 4 (1861). Clear strike of circular datestamp with "Paid 10" in arc handstamp on red and blue 9-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic cover (F9-2B), addressed to Savannah Ga. and turned with 10c Blue, Die A (11) inside, tied by Savannah circular datestamp and addressed to Abbeville S.C., just a bit of the gum from flap showing thru on front

VERY FINE. THIS 9-STAR CONFEDERATE FLAG IS ONE OF THE RAREST OF ALL CIVIL WAR PATRIOTIC DESIGNS. TO FIND IT USED FROM FLORIDA AND TURNED WITH A GENERAL ISSUE STAMP IS EXTRAORDINARY.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag designs (7 thru 13 stars). Surviving examples are extremely rare. This example used from Florida is one of only two 9-Star Flag uses recorded in the Briggs census -- the other is offered in the following lot.
