CSA 10, 10¢ Frameline with trace of frame at top and partial frame at left, pre-use crease, tied on cover by beautiful struck bold (J)ACKSON [Mississippi] straightline on cover dated “June the 7” in manuscript and addressed to Mrs. W. J. Martin, South Carolina, Anderson District, Pendleton PO. Siegel Auctions website cites only TWO RECORDED FRAMELINE COVERS with the Jackson straightline, although I recently sold a third from the same correspondence that was CSA Catalog type CC SL-07A – the rarer of the two straightlines with ball on J intact, as this likely is. In the catalog, a straightline cancel listed on a Frameline cover has a 200% premium, thus valuing this at $10,500. This cancel on an ordinary cover catalogs $1,500. One in the Kilbourne collection a couple years ago sold for over $5,000 (including buyer premium). Missing small part of top back flap, light cover wrinkling, small iconic Dietz signature on back, Ex Conrad Bush. $2,750.

Warren J. Martin served in “G” Company, SC 22nd Infantry, Evans’ Brigade, French’s Division, Depart of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida (later Army of Northern Virginia). Much more info on linked page.

CSA 10a, 10¢ milky blue, Frameline with huge margin at right displaying complete frameline, partial framelines at top and bottom, tied by clear strike of MOBILE / ALA // JUL / 12 double-circle datestamp on fresh cover to Mrs. A. G. Duggar, Macon, Marengo County, Ala.,1983 CSA. certificate, SCV $3,250. $2,900.

Macon, Alabama, also known as Macon Quarters, is an unincorporated community in Calhoun County, not Marengo County. It was named after Macon, Georgia. There was a post office there from 1891-1903. This cover is clearly addressed to Macon, Marengo County, Alabama. The Duggar Family Letters (1861-1865) may be found in the Auburn University Digital Library. These are letters to and from the Duggar family, clearly stated as from Marengo County, Alabama, during the Civil War. There apparently were two small communities of this name in Alabama. Helbock lists Macon in Marengo County from 1833-1861 with Rarity 5 (from there, not to). Likely, the Marengo County town died and the Calhoun County one took hold afterward. To a scarce Alabama town.
