Large to huge margins, clear strike of "Madison C.H. Flo. Feb. 21" (1861) circular datestamp, deep thin and tiny pinhole

EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. ONE OF THE MOST ATTRACTIVE OF THE FOUR RECORDED OFF-COVER MADISON COURT HOUSE, FLORIDA, POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONALS.

The Madison Court House Provisional was the subject of a definitive article by Patricia A. Kaufmann in the American Philatelist and the Confederate Philatelist (the article, with updates, can be viewed at http://www.trishkaufmann.com/madison.php ). The Madison Provisional is one of six stamps that the Scott Catalogue now lists separately as "3c 1861 Postmasters' Provisionals". They are distinct from the 5c and 10c Confederate Provisionals in that the postmasters who issued the stamps were still technically under the control of the U.S. Post Office Department, and were remitting postal receipts to the Department (and were avoiding ordering new U.S. stamps in anticipation of a final change in administrative control of their offices). The 1861 Provisionals are all 3c adhesives or handstamps, reflecting the then-current U.S. letter rate. One of the recorded Madison Court House examples bears a manuscript "(P)aid in (Money)" in the handwriting of Postmaster Samuel J. Perry.

Only five examples of Scott 3AX1 are recorded, including the unique "CNETS" error offered in the following lot, and the only recorded on-cover example offered in lot 2094. There is also the unique Madison 5c Provisional press-printed entire, listed in the regular C.S.A. Provisional section (137XU1) and offered in lot 2095.

Joseph T. Colding was commissioned the Micanopy postmaster on July 25, 1861, replacing the pre-war postmaster, Thomas J. Leonard. This cover was apparently uprated by 5c with the handstamped Paid marking to reflect the now over-500 miles route via Tallahassee and Savannah due to the occupation of Jacksonville. The Micanopy handstamped Paid marking is also extremely rare -- the C.S.A. Catalog reports that the only handstamped Paid example of this marking was lost in a fire. There are two recorded examples of the Micanopy Provisional. The other is a 5c under-500 mile rate, although it, too, was mailed after the March 12, 1862, occupation of Jacksonville.
