VA3047 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. $1,250.00
