    I have a large collection of Civil War Covers, approximately 500. It includes many by Charles Magnus, black and white as well as hand colored. Many of Pres. Lincoln also maps,ships,flags and camp scenes etc. colors and black and white. I know nothing of there worth and am interested in selling the entire collection. I would appreciate any and all the help you can give me as to how one goes about doing this. If you would like I can send some pictures to you, however there is no way I could ever take them all. Thank You .
    Sincerely, Margaret

    I am the Author of “Union Civil War Patriotic Covers” and some of the information about Civil War Patriotic material on this site comes from my book. If you wish to contact me at my email address (, I will try to help you.

    Yes please send pictures, I have some old cachet covers myself and do not have any idea as to where to get references on these, no artist is indicated on any of them they seem to be of confederate war and Lincoln in content. I think by looking at one they seem to be printed in the 40′s but not sure of that either as one refers to period of 76 and 41 only. Can you help here?
    Very much appreciate any assistance I can get!

    For Margaret- I am an old stamp collector, & used to have a fairly good collection of Civil War covers, both Patriotic & Confederate, which I sold over 20 yrs ago. However, I’m interested in starting this again, & I noticed your ad of 1.30.08 wherein you stated you had about 500 Civil War Covers. Still have them? If so, I’d be interested in buying them. Regards, John

    Hi Margaret- do you still have your 500 Civil War covers? If so, I would like to buy them. I am a former collector of these covers, but sold that collection over 20 yrs ago; however, I would like to start another collection. Regards, John
