United States: Stamps: Confederate

Confederate States of America. The stamps of CSA are fun to collect and a challenge to find. Please keep in mind that these stamps were printed and used, and later stored, under difficult and crude conditions. Quality standards are not the same for CSA stamps as they are for most other stamps. Due to climatic conditions the effects of aging are typically seen. All items are guaranteed to be as described and may be viewed on approval. Payment plans are available.

Confederate States: Covers from a Confederate Officers Correspondence 1862-64: Interesting set of 8 covers from the correspondence between a Confederate officer and his family from 1862-64. Alfred Rives was an Engineer officer in the War Department in Richmond. His father and his wife Helen were at Cobham Depot in Albermarle County, Virginia. Three of the covers are addressed to "Cobham Depot Va. C.R.R." [Virginia Central Railroad] -- this is a scarce destination address; however, if these had been postmarked from Cobham Depot, they would individually each be worth the price of the entire lot! Three of the covers are addressed to him and five are from him to her. One cover from July 1862 is addressed to Captain Rives; the next in September 1862 is to Major Rives, indicating he had been promoted in the interim. A wide range of frankings shows the progression of stamp issues over the two year period. The earliest is a single 5c Davis #6 from May 29, 1862 (very scarce as a single on cover as the letter rate increased to 10 cents on July 1). Next is the July 1862 cover franked by two 5c Light Blue Davis #4 with m/s cancels, followed by three 5c Blue #6 or 7 pairs for the 10c rate and finally three with the later 10c Davis #11 or 12. Condition varies: three covers have small edge tears due to careless opening, the rest of the envelopes are sound and F-VF or better with some VF. Stamp margins vary as typical, ranging from a couple roughly separated, to F-VF, with a couple of four margin VF examples. What makes this group of covers so fascinating is not just that they are all related to one family correspondence, but also the detailed annotation and docketing of the senders and the dates they were sent, making it a much more personal record of the communications of one Civil War Confederate family!

6, April 1862 Five Cents Jefferson Davis, Light Blue. Three-margin example neatly tied on reverse of a "visiting card" envelope as both postage and a letter seal. Year date not visible; appears to be canceled ROM(E), Georgia, and mailed to Atlanta. Quite an attractive cover, unusual on a small envelope, and in unusually nice quality.

11 Intense Deep Blue, 1864 Keatinge and Ball Printing, Die A, 10 Cents Jefferson Davis. Typical blurred / filled background of the Keatinge and Ball printings. Used VF with four huge margins on attractive cover to Clarkesville, Virginia. The cover has typical wear and a stain will away from the stamp. The stamp bears what I have been told is a "W. Army Camp grid" cancellation, however the cancel does not appear to tie the stamp to the cover. However, viewing from inside the cover, it is very clear that the stamp has been on the cover for an extremely long time. I believe that the stamp does belong on the cover and guarantee it as such, however cost of expertizing to be borne by the purchaser.

12 (Grayish) Blue, 1863 Archer and Daly Printing, Die B, 10 Cents Jefferson Davis. Filled-in lower corners typical of #12 (Die B) and with virtually no remnants of the additional outer frame line. Used VF, with three huge and one close margins. Neat and light cancellation, but which does cut the paper slightly. Clear and sharp printing. A remarkable color which I have not seen before and does not seem to be listed in the catalogs. Very attractive with unusual appearance!

Confederate States of America Paper Money (GENUINE): #T-67 $20 February 17, 1864 normal version (not the six month / two year variety). Serial #61107. I believe this to be in "Fine" grade: It is obviously circulated and there is significant creasing, but it is not terribly obvious from the front. The bill is complete, no pieces are missing and the corners are probably sharper than expected for Fine. The red on the front is more salmon colored, perhaps just slightly faded. The blue on the reverse is quite strong. The back has more wear than the front. Overall quite attractive. While extremely nice examples of this bill can be purchased for $500-600, examples in approximately this grade generally seem to trade at around $80-110.
