VA2946 Two Cover from the same correspondence -- North-to-South Civilian Through-the-Lines -- Both covers addressed exactly the same and in the same handwriting. CSA #11 (AD) (4-Margin) tied by the Richmond, Va CDS Powell Type 5f 15 AUG (1864). This Type 5f postmark is recorded used in July 1864 but not in August 1864. CSA #12c AD Greenish-Blue (margin clipped at lower left) tied by the Richmond , Va CDS Powell Type 6p 27 SEP (1864). Addressed to Mr. George F. Carr, Jeffersonton, Camden Co., Georgia Care of N. H. Guyton Esqr. At upper left in the same hand as the address "Per flag of truce." The actual origin of the covers in the North is not known as they are the inside envelopes (Confederate postage affixed) which were removed at the transfer point (most likely Old Point Comfort, Va), and the outer envelopes were discarded. There is no enclosure with either cover. The covers were then taken to Richmond from the transfer point where they entered the Confederate mails for delivery to Georgia. Very Fine examples of Civilian through-the-lines covers. $550.00
