Clear strike of blue circular datestamp with matching "PAID" and "10" handstamps on cover to military address in Winchester Va. with red and blue 9-Star Confederate Flag and Liberty Cap Patriotic design (F9-1), reduced at right, small repair at top right

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. AN EXTREMELY RARE EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE OF THE 9-STAR FLAG PATRIOTIC DESIGNS.

The ninth star represents the admission of Arkansas, which was followed only three days later by North Carolina. Due to the short time period there were fewer 9-Star Confederate Patriotic designs produced than any other flag design (7 thru 13 stars). Surviving examples are rare and are normally found with the F9-2 design. This flag (F9-1) is on a similar order of rarity to the other listed 9-Star design (F9-4).

Ex Antrim, Matthies, Weill and from our 1982 Rarities sale, where acquired by the Kilbournes. Illustrated in C.S.A. Catalog on p. 431 and in Wishnietsky's Confederate Patriotic Covers and Their Usages on p. 50, where stated "one reported". C.S.A. Catalog value $10,000.00
