VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE USE OF AN 1860 BRECKINRIDGE PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN COVER WITH THE CONFEDERATE STATES STAMP.
Breckinridge was a Kentucky lawyer and politician who served as Vice President of the U.S. from 1857-61. He came in third in the popular vote and second in the electoral vote, ahead of Bell and Douglas. He instead became a senator, until he was expelled for joining the Confederate army. As an interesting side note, his cousin was Mary Todd Lincoln. This cover, depicting the pro-Southern Breckinridge, could be interpreted as a patriotic use
VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL EXAMPLE OF THE 5-CENT BLUE LITHOGRAPH USED TO PAY THE PRE-JULY 1, 1862 RATE ON A SMALL GENERAL BEAUREGARD PATRIOTIC COVER -- A LOVELY "BLUE ON BLUE" COMBINATION.
