Own Scarce Civil War Prisoner's Letter Cover – Only 1 Available!

Now you can get a piece of US Civil War history that has survived over 150 years to make it into your collection.  This cover carried a letter from a prisoner of war through Delaware City, Delaware, where it was examined, before arriving at its destination in Alexandria, Virginia.  The cover features an oval examiner's handstamp, a 3¢ Rose Washington stamp (US #65) with grid cancel, and circular cancel from September 15.  No Confederate markings are present as Alexandria was under Union control at that point in the war. The stamp on this cover has a tiny hole in the upper right corner, but has very fine centering.  We've encapsulated the cover in museum-quality mylar to protect it from the ravages of time, meaning you can handle it without fear. Civil War prisoner of war covers are scarce and dramatic pieces of history.  Take advantage of this opportunity and add this cover to your collection today.
