Lot 5445

Confederate States, 1862, 2¢ green (Scott 3), vertical strip of 4 with large margins all around except just cut in at the top, pen-canceled (not tied), manuscript underneath stamps "Chge Acct 23", on extensively cleaned and repaired homemade envelope to Jackson, Miss.; very light damp stain at the lower left and brown stains on the back from glue used to form the envelope; large repaired tear through top of bottom stamp, almost Very Fine appearance, a rare multiple, with 2020 Crowe certificate.

The strange rate of 8¢ would have been correct for a six-ounce circular (the cover appears to have never been sealed) or a four-ounce foreign publication. It could also be a 2¢ underpayment of the 10¢ letter rate that went unnoticed or was ignored.
