USA - Confederate States Postmaster Provisionals

Information by Mr. Michael O’Reilly taken from the "PhilaMercury" website of Richard Frajola at:
https://www.philamercury.com/board.php

CSA Postmaster Provisionals on the CWPS website

Frank Crown has collected current CSA Postmaster Provisionals census data for 89 provisionals on the Civil War Philatelic Society website at:

https://www.civilwarphilatelicsociety.org/resources/confeder ... -censuses/

Every stamp or cover listed in the censuses is illustrated. Each census is a standalone PDF, so feel free to download and use. Extensive provenance and auction sales history data is included for each listing. This data is constantly changing as new data comes to light, and more censuses are in work.

Please check your collections and report new listings or changes to the current listings to Frank at census@civilwarphilatelicsociety.org

If you have collected census data on your specific area related to the Civil War, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to put it on the CWPS website

Many of the auction catalogs listed in the censuses, including all of the Ferrary sales, are on the CWPS website at
https://www.civilwarphilatelicsociety.org/resources/auction-catalogs/

New members are welcome, and can join online at
https://www.civilwarphilatelicsociety.org/the-society/join/signup/

Frank and I are constantly adding new content to the CWPS website and welcome your comments and suggestions. You can reach us at contact@civilwarphilatelicsociety.org

Personally I find the possibility of viewing interesting many of the past auction sale catalogs listed in the censuses, including all of the Ferrary sales.

Friendliness !

Franco

Franco useful info but not a single image.

EVERY new thread here **MUST** have an image.

These obscure sites can and do vanish without trace overnight - seen it occur 1000 times, so an image or two is essential. :!: :!: :!:

Thanks,
