VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING CAPTURED CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC COVER USED FROM UNION-OCCUPIED NEW BERN NORTH CAROLINA TO ST. LOUIS.

Confederate captured uses of Union Patriotics are sought after by collectors, and due to the large number of Union designs that were printed, are relatively available. However, with far fewer Confederate Patriotics manufactured, Union captured uses sent north are very rare. On this example, the designs are crossed out in pen -- no doubt reflecting the sentiments of the sender or postmaster
