Civil War-Very Rare Block of 9 Unused Confederate Postage Stamps #1290
With the exception of a sheet of a dozen stamps we found years ago; this is the largest number of stamps in a block we have had in our inventory for sale. Obviously the most common way to find a Confederate stamp is cancelled on an envelope, followed by finding a loose cancelled or unused stamp. Even finding pairs is very uncommon, but a block of nine such as this is very rare. The stamps are in excellent unused condition and would make a great display piece perhaps in a frame or shadow box with other war relics. The missing top edge of the stamps is likely damage that occurred about 160 years ago, not a tear from any time recently.
