Comments about the web site: This is a wonderful site that has gotten the fire burning again for me to collect CSA stamps. It's very informative and easy to use. I collected stamps as a teenager and have a few CSA stamps, and began collecting again last year but was a bit wary of CSA stamps because of all the forgeries. Your site has give me confidence to purchase CSA stamps (already spotting a few fakes). This site is on my "favorites" list. Thanks!!

Comments about the web site: thank you --- a nice romp through the forgeries. much enjoyed. I have a copy,i recall, of the fort sumpter 'posted' twice on a #65 cover...resolves my old question about it. my interests lean more towards the Federal patriotic envelopes...tend to be partisan to the Union. also they are of great variety, and more available. also, NYFM's , new york city foreign mail cancels of the 1870's... i have a home-grown CSA fake story of my own... i recently purchased on ebay a circa 1880 cover with a greyish one-cent banknote. the sender had drawn in pencil a picture of a ship at sea, with birds,etc. and waves..sort of like the 12cent 1869. i commented to a friend that if the ship would be identified as the CSS Alabama, and the Franklin seen as a true confederate definitive, it would be SOME cover. Hope you enjoy sharing that droll phantasy... anyhow, really enjoyed your webpage, will revisit and see more. thank you again. d.lerner, late of the 27th Va. Vol. Inf., CSA, reenactment.

Comments about the web site: Your website looks great. Although I would be pleased to be added to your mailing list, I'm an advanced collector and am looking only for a sound 2-3 line #10. Please keep me in mind, as I will try to pay top dollar for it, but it must be sound and have a recent PF or CSA cert (or the ability to get one). Thanks! Bill

Comments about the web site: I was looking at some very old bibles and hymnals that were given to me by my wife's mom and found an old confederate set of two stamps. Out of curiosity I entered a search to find out more about these stamps. To my enjoyment I spent the next four hours on your site. It was very interesting and educational. I enjoyed it so much I decided to start on my journey as a CSA stamp collector. Why not, I've got a good start. With the help of your site I believe I have found an authentic horizontal set of 2 CSA #7 5c Blue Richmond Printing Jefferson Davis stamps.

Comments about the web site: What a fantastic site, especially the fakes and forgeries. The "detective work" there lookss like fun stuff. I came across a possible CSA cover at an estate sale in Richmond VA last week. It has only a blue (maybe green, am I going color blind?) Charleston SC postmark dated Jul 20 (no year) saying "5 cts" inside the single circle. It is very heavily struck, though has a bit of a smear to it. There are no additional postal marks on the envelope. So I am imagining that it might be a provisional or a pre-stamped handstamp, but I would be curious to know anything about different postmarks of Charleston S.C. and when they were used. I started hitting the net to see about this postmark and the only similar one I found was on your site originating from Virginia somewhere (I forget, already). I am a miniatures wargamer (toy soldiers) hobbyist and I enjoy gaming Civil War battles, but the whole field of CSA postal history is an interesting angle on historical things! Again, a great site, I suspect only the updated Dietz's catalog could be a better overall resource. Jim

I am an oldtimer (78 yrs old) and my collection was mainly accummulated in the 1930s. It has lain dormant for a considerable period. Just beginning to look at it again. My grandfather, Louis Alt, was Postmaster in Saint Louis, Missouri and handed Lindberg the first bag of airmail from there.

Comments about the web site: I enjoyed seen your collection of black powder revolvers. I like many outside the USA love the history behind the revolver, especially the conversions. Colt was a very good business man. The laws in Australia are far too restrictive to collect revolvers but the interest is there. It is also interesting to see the English and Australian history link together through the gun. eg our Ned Kelly went down, Colt Navy blazing. Thanks for doing the website. Mine ( www.classic-arms.com ) is not as complex but you may enjoy it..the collection is the only in the world ...43 of these were ever... made 12 are in my set which I am donating to the Guide Dogs SA to auction..as I have no family that appreciate the hand gun as I do. Thanks Ken Lewitzka

Comments about the web site: My father has some stamps that were sent on letters received from his great-great grandfather, W.W. Sowards, during the Civil War. He wants to find outmore about them and the value that they may hold at this time. He says that they have the picture of Jefferson Davis on them.

Comments about the web site: I have always been interested in the history of the Civil War. My paternal great-grandfather, Alexander Scarbrough was in the Dixie Rifles fromed in Memphis, TN and was wounded at Shiloh, TN. His personal memoirs are filed there. He was a prisioner of war twice. He was exchanged the first time. The second time he was in a Union prison camp in Pennsylvania and was not released until a significant time after the end of the war. I epent an extremely pleasant morning reading through your site. I have been a stamp collector since 1950, but just recently bought my first CSA stamp. Sincerely, Jack Jeffers

Comments about the web site: Dear Sir: The learning I found in your site is impressive. A relative gave me various stamps, most of them turned out to be confederate fantasies (Blockade, Houston, the Confederate flag, etc.). I would never have found out for myself. Most of the others I believe I can safely think of them as reprints; they do not match with the Scott illustration (the PAID FIVE Greenville, Ala., town's name not in capital letters, etc.). Still there are some for which I have still found no reference (they are probably bogus too, like a Florida Express green stamp, and a 2 CENTS. blue in green paper with no name which more or less resembles the (Mexican) Chiapas Provisionals). I truly thank you; I spent a most instructive time. Please be assured of my best regards. Pablo

I bought my very first CSA stamps from you yesterday and truly look forward to receiving them. I hope to buy all of the remaining general issues from you in time.

I started in the 60's, stopped in the 70's, and just resumed in 2008. Your site is easy to navigate, but I do wish you would expand your supplies to include 2001-2008. Could you recommend a site as friendly as yours for these later stamps? (No plans to add stamps after 2000 as it is too difficult and too expensive for me to keep up with all the new issues. The only one I know of who handles all the new issues to date on the Internet is Mystic Stamp Company which is a very large outfit. There may be others on the Internet, but I do not know who they are. -- JLK)
