VERY FINE. A BEAUTIFUL AND RARE EXAMPLE OF THE JEFFERSON DAVIS MEDALLION PATRIOTIC DESIGN WITHOUT THE ALLEGORICAL BACKGROUND SCENE, AND FRANKED WITH THE 5-CENT GREEN JEFFERSON DAVIS GENERAL ISSUE.
This design is one of the rarest of the Jefferson Davis Medallion Patriotics. It has 11 stars in both the flags and the sunburst above "Confederate States of America." It omits the bridge, cannon, train, steamboat and cotton bale allegorical scene below the medallion, which is found on most of the other Davis designs. The combination of the Davis Patriotic design with the Davis First General Issue stamp is quite striking.
