Sale Number 1100, Lot Number 241, Confederate States2c Green (3), 2c Green (3)2c Green (3). Original gum, lightly hinged, enormous margins all around incl. large portions of adjoining stamps at sides, brilliant color, fresh

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB ORIGINAL-GUM EXAMPLE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 2-CENT LITHOGRAPH ISSUE IN THE FINEST CONDITION ATTAINABLE.

Collectors of superb classic stamps are advised to carefully consider this stamp. While the typographed and majority of the engraved Confederate issues (Scott 6-7, 8, 11-13) are available in high grades due to the supply of large multiples and sheets, the same is not true for the Lithographed issues (Scott 1-5). Large multiples of the 2c Lithograph are scarce and expensive -- and therefore not conducive to harvesting superb singles.

With 2014 P.S.E. certificate (OGph, XF-Superb 95 Jumbo; SMQ $6,300.00 as 95, $12,600.00 as 98). This is the highest grade awarded by P.S.E. to Scott No. 3 with original gum. Only one other shares this grade

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EAST-TO-WEST TRANS-MISSISSIPPI EXPRESS COVER, BEARING A PAIR OF THE 20-CENT GENERAL ISSUE.

No more than twenty covers with a pair of the 20c Green paying the 40c Trans-Mississippi Express rate are known. A majority of the known covers are heavily stained and damaged. It is believed that this particular cover was hand carried from Richmond to Shreveport where it was placed in the mails - possibly by Franklin Sexton. Sexton was a wealthy Texas planter and lawyer who represented Texas 4th District in the Confederate Congress.
