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
