VA2951 CSA #7 (a pair and two singles paying) (margin irregular on one stamp) tied by two strikes of the BLUE Petersburg, Va 2 AUG. Coarse brown paper cover addressed to Robert Hamilton Sheriff, Brevard, Transylvania Co., North Carolina. "Brevard" is lined through and the cover is re-addressed to Davidson's River. Routing instruction "via Raleigh NC and Columbia SC" at the l;ower left. This is not a forwarded cover as the re-address is in the same hand as the rest of the address and appears to have been a mistake that was corrected. The stamps pay a double weight rate. Period docketing indicates that the cover contained "Election Returns" which would easily account for the double weight. Very clean cover. $300.00
