CSA 10, 10¢ Frameline with trace of frame at top and partial frame at left, pre-use crease, tied on cover by beautiful struck bold (J)ACKSON [Mississippi] straightline on cover dated “June the 7” in manuscript and addressed to Mrs. W. J. Martin, South Carolina, Anderson District, Pendleton PO. Siegel Auctions website cites only TWO RECORDED FRAMELINE COVERS with the Jackson straightline, although I recently sold a third from the same correspondence that was CSA Catalog type CC SL-07A – the rarer of the two straightlines with ball on J intact, as this likely is. In the catalog, a straightline cancel listed on a Frameline cover has a 200% premium, thus valuing this at $10,500. This cancel on an ordinary cover catalogs $1,500. One in the Kilbourne collection a couple years ago sold for over $5,000 (including buyer premium). Missing small part of top back flap, light cover wrinkling, small iconic Dietz signature on back, Ex Conrad Bush. $2,750.
