||CSA #9 T-E-N (4-Margin with a little gum staining around the edges) tied by the BLUE Petersburg, Va CDS with a MAR (1864) date. Addressed to Rev William E. Judkins, Farmville, Va. Coarse brown paper Adversity Cover made from what appears to be a printed by unused lined business form. The
cover has not been cut or folded for display. Another interesting
feature of the cover is that the stamp has a light central vertical
period pen stroke and appears to have been pen cancelled. This suggests
that the stamp has been illegally reused because the pen cancel did not
adequately cancel the stamp initially. The fact that the stamp had a
light pen cancel and was apparently reused was missed by the Petersburg
postmaster, and the cover allowed to go through with a reused stamp.
Stamps that have been successfully reused on a cover are a Confederate
rarity. Exceptionally clean cover.
