Lots 1505-1513

Lot 1505    

Confederacy, Confederate States of America, Post Office Department, Official Business, Chief of the Appointment Bureau, office imprint endorsed by "B.N. Clements" on U.S. 3¢ star die entire (U26) to Danner's Cross Road in Charleston S.C., cancelled by "Richmond Va. Nov 4 1863" cds with matching "Free" rating handstamp; some docketing erased, Fine.
Estimate    $150 - 200.

Only Official Post Office Department mail traveled free of charge. No such covers into or out of the main Charleston Post Office during the war are known to date, likely due to the relocation of postal operations several times in 1863-64, when nearly all the records were probably destroyed. Danner's Cross Road was a tiny post office located near Charleston.
