Confederate States Covers. Archival accumulation of approximately 200 covers from several correspondences, tremendous variety, a quick perusal yields the following items of merit: U.S. 3c Star Die with Paid 5; ms. "Telegraph" endorsed covers; military addresses and soldiers' endorsements; postmasters' free franks; lots of General Issues, mainly Nos. 7, 11 and 12, but incl. No. 10 Frameline (cut in); semi-official imprints; ms. "Due 2" rates; turned covers; patriotics; post-war mourning covers addressed by Varina Davis; dozens and dozens of other interesting covers, which, despite opening faults and typical rough condition, form an offering that is better than some Confederate collections we've seen; a great opportunity for the collector who knows his stuff or the retail/eBay dealer who needs lots of $50-100 retail covers
