Sale Number 1196, Lot Number 984, Confederate States: Independent and CSA Uses of U.S. StampsMemphis Ten. May 5 (1861), Memphis Ten. May 5 (1861)Memphis Ten. May 5 (1861). Circular datestamp ties 3c Dull Red, Ty. III (26) on cover to Georgetown S.C. in "C.S." (Confederate State) with overall 7-Star Confederate Flag Patriotic design (F7-2B, with the flagstaff), stamp with insect nibbles affecting perfs on all sides, area of waterstaining below stamp

VERY FINE APPEARING AND RARE CONFEDERATE STATE USE OF THE 3-CENT 1857 ISSUE ON AN OVERALL 7-STAR PATRIOTIC COVER.

The F7-2B design contains a prominent flagstaff, in contrast to F7-2A which lacks the flagstaff. On this cover the panels for the stars and the top stripe are well out of alignment, attesting to the sometimes crude nature of production for Confederate Patriotics
