EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF FIVE RECORDED COVERS BEARING THE LIMESTONE SPRINGS POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL STAMP. A MAJOR CONFEDERATE STATES RARITY.
The five known Limestone Springs covers come from the Dean correspondence, although this cover is addressed to Lucy E. Simpson (in the handwriting of Lizzie Dean), rather than Corporal Edward J. Dean. Two of the covers bear single circular die-cut stamps. Two covers bear two rectangular-cut singles each, paying the 10c rate. The fifth cover is the single rectangular-cut franking offered here.
