Fake Wallpaper Cover

CSA #11(AD) Rich Hill, Ga Wallpaper Cover to Kentucky

Wallpaper Covers are among the most desireable of the CSA Adversity Covers. The above Wallpaper Cover is a total and complete fake.

A piece of wallpaper was used to make the cover and a stamp applied. The Rich Hill, Ga postmark is a complete fake as there was no such place in CSA Georgia. The added address besides being improbable (an apparent late CSA usage to Kentucky) was not written in period acid fast ink. A relatively clumsy attempt at faking a desireable wallpaper cover.
