VERY FINE AND RARE. ONLY FOUR COVERS BEARING THE UNIONVILLE POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ARE CONTAINED IN OUR RECORDS.
The Unionville Provisional was produced by using two handstamps on hand at the post office. The paper, slightly bluish, was first ruled by pencil into lines forming squares. One example also shows printed lines, indicating that it may have been created from normal lined paper.
Our records contain the following four covers (none are known off-cover): 1) Pair tied by circular datestamp on 7-Star Patriotic cover to Centreville Va., ex Ferrary, Caspary and Lilly; 2) Uncancelled on cover to Pacolet Mills S.C., cover repaired at top and bottom; 3) the cover offered here; and 4) Tied by Unionville circular datestamp on cover to Mt. Taubor (N.C.), some staining around stamp.
Ex Kohn. With note by Dietz.
