Three large margins, exceptionally deep shade, full at top except for sealed tear that barely affects design, tied by bold "Richmond Va. Jul. 5, 1862" datestamp on brown homemade cover to Arlington Depot (faint address)

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE DISCOVERY COPY OF THE FASCINATING AND ENIGMATIC "CAMMANN" IMPRINT, WHICH FIRST BECAME KNOWN TO AUGUST DIETZ IN 1942. ONLY TWO EXAMPLES ARE RECORDED ON COVER, BOTH OF WHICH ARE IN THIS DEEP ROSE SHADE.

The cover is accompanied by a letter from August Dietz, dated January 12, 1942, to a prior owner of the cover. In his letter Dietz provides his explanation for the imprint, which is that Cammann was a lithograph worker in the employ of Hoyer & Ludwig who added his name to the outside margin of the lithographic stone. Dietz further speculates that after the imprint was noticed, it was probably removed "on orders from the office".

Years after Dietz wrote his letter, research by Everett Cooper (published in Confederate Philatelist, Jan.-Feb. 1985) established that Cammann was indeed a lithograph worker, but Cooper connected the "Cammann" imprint to work performed for J. T. Paterson. It is known that the Paterson firm acquired some of Hoyer & Ludwig's equipment and employed a number of lithographers who had previously worked for Hoyer & Ludwig. The 5c Blue and 10c Rose lithographed stamps, which have always been attributed exclusively to Hoyer & Ludwig, could well have been printed by both Hoyer & Ludwig and J. T. Paterson, with the Hoyer & Ludwig imprint on the 10c stone left unchanged during the later Paterson printings. The addition of the "Cammann" imprint on 5c Blue and 10c Rose stamps tends to support Cooper's theory that a portion of the printing took place at the Paterson firm.
