VERY FINE. A UNIQUE ADVERSITY USAGE OF THE PERFORATED 10-CENT ARCHER & DALY STAMP.

The re-use of pre-war envelopes was commonly practiced in the Confederacy in response to paper shortages. However, examples of pre-war turned covers are scarce, and early usages with the U.S. 1851 Issue are rare. To find such an example with the perforated Archer & Daly stamp is true serendipity. As an indication of the value of this unique cover, it realized $3,900 in 1979, nearly twenty years ago, in the Brugh sale.
