EXTREMELY FINE. A MARVELOUS CONFEDERATE ILLUSTRATED ADVERTISING COVER BEARING THE 10-CENT ROSE LITHOGRAPH, TURNED AND RE-MAILED WITH A PAIR OF THE 5-CENT DE LA RUE TYPOGRAPH.
We can unequivocally state that this is one of the finest Confederate advertising covers extant. Any use of the 10c Rose on an illustrated cover is rare, and this is one of the choicest of that small population. Interestingly, the finest 10c Rose illustrated college cover is also postmarked Tuscaloosa (ex Dr. Brandon, Siegel Sale 1087, lot 420, realized $17,500 hammer). This cover and the 10c Engraved cover with the same design offered in the following lot make an ideal pair.
Ex Cole and Kilbourne
