Estimate    $2,000 - 3,000.

A series of oversize envelopes with Regimental designs were produced by the L.N. Rosenthal Lithographic Company of Philadelphia, with designs of various Army Camps depicted on the backs of the covers. These attractive and rare designs are highly prized by Civil War Patriotic Cover collectors. They are especially rare postally used, and one contention is that they really were not produced for public use, rather were presentation pieces to ranking officers in the Potomac Army, and their non-typical large size tends to bear that opinion out.
