Confederate States of America

The State of the Nation

We are one People

With the Pandemic and current Social Unrest i have just mounted two pages that i believe are of some interest, an unusual twist on history.

William Tecumse Sherman was the proctor of a Southern academy, a year before the war he censured a Cadet for being involved in stealing chickens from an old negro man and paid for the chickens out of his own pocket.

I will leave the interpretation of the emotions to those that have more knowledge on the subject. but it does bring out the many personal conflicts of the War.

Peer Review:

The printing of the Lithographed General Issues of the CSA have been one of my main collecting interest since the mid 1950's. I have starting a series of articles on these stamps for the CHRONICLE. Prior to publication the rough text will appear on our web site for review and comment, if you can help it can be incorporated into the article with credit. This Internet version is for peer review and is not intended to be the final polished article, there will be no illustrations and the formatting is minimal, just the facts.

The above issues of the CHRONICLE are in stock at $3.50 each unless priced otherwise. The printed version of these articles are well illustrated. On these journals there is a $3.00 postage charge for the first and $0.50 each for the rest.

U.S. Railroad Contract Mail Routes


Hugh V. Feldman

This book this book is of much value to any collector for towns on or near the rail roads, it presents the development of the early railroads in a historical context focusing on the establishment, routes and the cities and towns served as it relates the philatelic information.

The mail contract route information is presented in a well-organized manner including dates, route # s, contract agreement and cost per mile. The arrangement is by state accompanied by charts, copies of detailed maps locating town and a detailed list of the stations served on the various mail contracts.

The mail contracts normally have the individual stops and dates thus one may be able to bracket in time when a specific station was in use.

This book runs 1,096 pages. in full color, hard bound, dust jacket, illustrates 242 covers, 582 maps and 360 other images. A DVD is included containing over 800 covers many are not illustrated in the book, PMG annual reports and other reports to Congress between 1817 and 1878, these run about 10,000 pages. Also included are images of the manuscript Railroad Contracts by States, 6,773 in all. We think these contracts have never been reproduced before. Additional philatelic information is presented through the many covers included in the text that were carried by railroads in each respective states. These are described in detail and the appropriate references are included to assist philatelists in their research.

The Springfield Facsimiles of Confederate Postage Stamps

by Steven M. Roth, F.J. Crown Jr & Patricia A. Kaufmann

The Springfield's are an evident fake but have fooled many and continue to do so, they are frequently offered as authentic on the web. Many examples are on poor paper and easy to spot but others are not. In the 1966 Washington International one was in the exhibit on cover as authentic.

Confederate States of America, Philatelic Fakes, Forgeries and Fantasies of the 19th and 20th Centuries by Peter W. W. Powell, John L. Kimbrough

The Confederate States of America

Catalog and Handbook

of Stamps and Postal History

By the Confederate Stamp Alliance

Edited by Patricia A. Kaufmann, Francis J. Crown Jr, & Jerry S. Palazolo

The catalog covers numerous facets of Confederate Philately: Postmaster Provisional, Handstamped Paids, Fancy Cancellations, Patriotic Covers, College Covers, Covert Mail, Official and Semi-Official imprints, Flag of Truce Covers, etc. etc. Over 10,000 priced valuations.

The general issues, my area, 50 pages, is a major expansion and clarification from anything previously published. The CSA 10¢ blue lithograph has one Scott # but in reality it is three different designs and produced by two different printers. It is my hope that you can now understand and enjoy the adhesive stamps, a special effort was made to provide images that are large enough to be of real use to both the average and advanced collector. A new section is devoted to the Unofficial Printings, stamps printed from the original plates but not by or during the CSA, they are far fewer than one would believe from the stamps being commonly offered as reprints that are actually forgeries.

This book represents a major expansion and correction from the last Dietz Catalogs, 1959 and 1986, a completely new catalog. Many enlarged illustrations in color. A massive work, about 4.5 lbs in weight, edition unfortunately limited to 1,000 copies, a reprint or revised edition in our life time is not anticipated however it may be put on the web in the members only section of the Confederate Stamp Alliance website. I still hope to publish a detailed plating of the lithographed general issues.

2012, 528 pages, cloth, excellent illustrations in color, long out of print, $325.00, enquire

It is an exceptional work but the files on the DVD need major attention.

Byne Index

Confederate States of America, Philatelic Subject Index and Bibliography, 1862-1999 by Richard H. Byne An index and bibliography with no comparison in American philately. Over 8,200 books, articles, auction catalogs, show programs, etc. are cited giving the basic description. These items are referred to in over 25,000 references by subject. Appendices cover abbreviations, authors, publications and illustrations.

Volume I, the literature for the 1862-1984 period, Volume II covers 1985 - 1999 plus a few year 2000 listings and any listings from the earlier period that have just come to our attention.

We honestly consider the Byne Index to be one of the top three CSA reference books. For a new collector the listing is the 1959 Catalog, the 1929 Postal History, and the Byne Index. For the established collector the sequence is reversed as it starts with the Byne Index, the 1929 Dietz and the 2012 Catalog. Confederate Philately with over 10,000 references is one of the most extensively documented in philately, without the index you can't find what is in your own library.

Dietz Confederate States Catalog and Hand-Book, The 1929 Dietz is the scholarly study and the Catalog and Hand-Books are the working listings for a collection. The Dietz Catalogs are the day-in and day-out working reference, we personally prefer the 1959 edition but the 1986 is also favored by many with the older ones of much reference value. A new edition is in the planning stage and is scheduled to appear in 2010, please see Forthcoming New CSA Hand-Book for details as they evolve.
