||CSA #7 Horz Pair
(4-Margin) tied by the BLUE
CDS with a NOV date. A second CDS also ties the stamps from Marion, Va.
Yellow paper cover addressed to M. B. Tate Esqr, Wytheville, Virginia.
What appears to have happened is that the cover originated in Lynchburg
but was sent by mistake (missent) to Marion and then forwarded on to
Wytheville. Lynchburg, Wytheville, and Marion were on the Virginia and
Tennessee Railroad line with Wytheville between Lynchburg and Marion.
One can speculate that the cover was possibly put in the wrong mail bag
and for some reason was not taken off the train at Wytheville but went
on to Marion instead. Very interesting cover. Part of top back flap
missing, otherwise Very Fine. Ex-Matz||$150.00|
