Civil War era - Black SATIRICAL ENVELOPE

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Patriotic and politically satirical postal covers were a popularly circulated art form in the times of the American Civil War with virtually every subject and opinion of the day expressed. Political and social satire envelopes were second only to patriotic subjects with both pro Union and pro Confederate bent. While the vast majority were put to use in the mails and have not survived, the wide variety of subject matter made the little covers a natural collectible even in the period. An ever dwindling supply of nice condition, unused examples have thus survived offering today’s collector / historian an opportunity to put together a respectable collection of quality original examples. Though steadily growing in value these covers still offer an opportunity on to accumulate a category of original Civil War artifacts and watch them grow in interest and value all at a relatively modest initial cost. We try to keep a small and varying supply of these on our site for those folks who might enjoy them. You can bring them all up for viewing by entering satirical envelope in our search feature. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
