Sale Number 1190, Lot Number 1564, Patriotics–Handstamped Paid and Due Markings: 7-Star thru 9-Star Flag DesignsWoodstock Va. Jul. 17, 1861, Woodstock Va. Jul. 17, 1861Woodstock Va. Jul. 17, 1861. Bold and clear strike of circular datestamp with year in manuscript, "PAID" straightline with ambiguous "6 cts" rating (or possibly "C cts"), also with manuscript "Due 5 cts" on cover to Moonfield Va. with red and blue 7-Star Confederate Flag with "Southern Rights" Banner Patriotic design (F7-9), "Parrott, Alexandria" imprint, corner and edge flaws including small mend at bottom left corner

VERY FINE APPEARING AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THIS "SOUTHERN RIGHTS" PATRIOTIC FLAG DESIGN WITH THE "PARROTT, ALEXANDRIA" IMPRINT.

Although the concept of States' Rights is referred to in verses on Patriotic covers, this is the only flag design which incorporates the words "Southern Rights." Other examples we have encountered were published by T. S. Whitaker of Wilmington N.C (including on the letter offered in lot 1484). This Parrott, Alexandria imprint, also found on the cover offered in lot 1479, is undoubtedly rare and is unlisted in the C.S.A. Catalog for this design.

Ex Matthies, where acquired by the Kilbournes in the 1968 sale of her Confederate Patriotics (Siegel Sale 337, lot 869). Illustrated in Wishnietsky's Confederate Patriotic Covers and Their Usages on p. 32
