This cover like those presently listed in my shop came from a large folio scrapbook of Political & Patriotic covers.
Each cover was carefully pasted in the large folio by the owner who collected these as a small child during the Civil War through his entire life span which concluded as a very old man during World War 2.
The cover will be sent to you with the thin scrapbook backing that the cover was attached.
