Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1389, 10¢ Blue Frameline Engraved 10c Blue, Frameline (10), 10c Blue, Frameline (10)10c Blue, Frameline (10). Block of four, unused (no gum), huge margins to just in at top right including part of adjoining stamp at top left, showing virtually complete framelines on two sides and the "+" framelines at center, top left stamp some thinning, bottom right stamp very light stain in upper right margin

FINE-VERY FINE APPEARANCE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED BLOCK OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES 10-CENT FRAMELINE ISSUE. A RARITY OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

The most important characteristic of Scott 10 is the frameline around each stamp. The lines were engraved on the plate and served as a guide for the siderographer when aligning the transfer roll to make the plate. Each stamp shares framelines with the adjoining positions. The only other multiples of the 10c Frameline are pairs or strips. This is the only recorded block, and with the "+" frameline between stamps and framelines at sides, is an ideal way to show the layout of the framelines.

From our 1987 Rarities sale. With 1979 P.F. and 2006 C.S.A. certificates. Illustrated in the Confederate States Catalog and Handbook on p. 342, where it is priced at $45,000.00. Scott Retail $30,000.00

EXTREMELY FINE. REGARDED AS THE FINEST OF THE FEW 10-CENT FRAMELINE STAMPS KNOWN ON COVERS FROM TENNESSEE. ONE OF A HANDFUL OF FOUR-FRAMELINE STAMPS ON COVER FROM ANY CONFEDERATE STATE.

By mid-1863, when the 10c Frameline was released, much of Tennessee was occupied by Federal forces. Greenville, in eastern Tennessee, was one of the last cities to fall, and it received more of the General Issues than any other post office. Scott Gallagher reported six known Frameline covers from Tennessee and we doubt there are many outside that population.

VERY FINE. ONE OF THREE RECORDED BLOCKADE-RUN COVERS WITH CONFEDERATE POSTAGE PAID BY THE 10-CENT FRAMELINE.

Based on another cover from the same correspondence, this cover to C. Emile LeBlanc originated in Havana, Cuba, and reached LeBlanc in Columbus, Mississippi (see Robert G. Kaufmann sale, Oct. 10, 1987, lot 625, for a cover containing a letter in French datelined Havana, Oct. 23, 1863). An entry from the Louisiana State University library provides a picture of LeBlanc's activities during the war: "LeBlanc, C.E. Papers, Mss. 1315, 1864-1865 [Columbus, Mississippi]. Location: Reel 12, Confederate Military Manuscripts, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge: This collection consists of six items, papers, 1864-1865, of C. E. LeBlanc, deputy Confederate government agent for the purchase of cotton. Papers concern the sale of certain Confederate property in Columbus, Mississippi, and its subsequent confiscation by a U.S. Treasury agent. Additional items include a promissory note, a contract for the delivery of cotton, and a broadside announcing a lecture to be presented by J. D. B. DeBow in Columbus, Mississippi."

This cover was carried on the blockade-runner Fanny, departing Havana July 24, 1863, arriving Mobile July 27. The Fanny was active April to September 1863 with 4 for 5 in successful trips. She was captured by the U.S. Navy in April 1862 in New Orleans, then recaptured on Apr. 12, 1863, by C.S.A. raiders at the mouth of the Mississippi River. On her last trip she was pursued by the U.S.S. Calhoun, but burned to prevent capture on Sep. 12, 1863.

James D. B. DeBow, to whose care this cover was directed, was an American publisher and slavery advocate best known for his influential magazine DeBow's Review. A resident of New Orleans, DeBow was exiled to Mobile after the capture of New Orleans in April 1862. He later became one of the founding members of the Louisiana Relief Committee.

The three recorded 10c Frameline blockade-run covers in the Special Routes book are Census Nos. BI-Wm-28, BI-Mob-2 and BI-Mob-3 (this is No. 3). Ex DuPuy and Walske
