EXTREMELY FINE AND A SPECTACULAR RARITY. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED USE OF A 20-CENT BISECT ON A CONFEDERATE POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL ENTIRE.
The Crown book records only two examples of the 10c Winnsborough provisional: 1) unused, ex Kohn; and 2) used with 10c Blue, Die A (12) affixed over provisional (the provisional not used as postage). We sold an example in the Dr. Karl Agre collection (sale 850, lot 5803) that is the only known example used as valid postage. This example, unlisted in Crown, represents the only recorded use of a 20c bisect on a Confederate provisional cover.
Ex Caspary and Haas. With 1968 P.F. certificate
VERY FINE. A RARE COMBINATION OF ADVERSITY USE AND THE 20-CENT BISECT.
Ex Weatherly. Scott Retail for bisect on normal cover $2,000.00
