3c Pink (64).
Bright color, tied by "Washington D.C. Dec. 1, 1861" circular datestamp on cover to North Livermore Me. with 34 States on Stars, Eagle and Shield Patriotic
design, original enclosure from a soldier in the 7th Maine Regt. on United States Capitol
letterhead, wonderful war contents including "we have had a number of skirmishes but not lost many men...it is fun to go on picket guard and shoot them damned rebels..."
, Very Fine, an outstanding combination of the 3c 1861 Pink on a Patriotic cover with good war content, with 2004 P.F. certificate, the enthusiasm expressed in this late 1861 letter would quickly dissipate as the realization set in that the war would not be won in a few months
