Have something interesting. Don't know if it is worth anything but not for sale anyway. It is an envelope addressed to a Mr. Charles Holst in Chester South Carolina. It has a stamp through some research is a Jefferson Davis #12 die B. What is interesting is the dates. Looks to have been sent on April 7th 1865 and delivered on April 9 1865. The very day Lee surrendered to Grant in Virginia.

Cool cover. Very late use of Confederate States stamp #11. Usually this late in the war you will see CS#12 on cover which is an almost identical stamp.

It makes you wonder if Civil War paper relics like letters, currency, bonds, stamps,envelopes,etc will still be oohed and ahhed over 100+ years from now.In other words, will they still be around or crumble into dust.

I'm either going to buy or make a display case for my bonds and Confederate money. But it needs to be a glass that protects from harmful rays and light.
I have each of my Confederate bonds and money in those hard plastic sleeves.
