The stamps are of the size of those in use by the United States Government, are colored green and ornamented with a very excellent bust of President Davis. As written in the Richmond Daily Dispatch, Oct. 17, 1861.

There were very infrequent occasions when Confederate Post Office patrons used a combination of two or more different general issue stamps to prepay the required postage rate for an envelope. They sometimes did so just to use up an older stamp that they owned or, more likely, the local Post Office ran short of certain stamps and asked their patrons to use a combination of general issue stamps that it currently had on hand.
