1864 Civil War Union Soldier’s Letter—writer Describes Battle Involvement:
1864 Civil War Union Soldier’s Letter—Writer Describes Battle Involvement . A letter written by a Union soldier with a letter location of Fredericksburg Virginia, and letter is dated 05/16/1864. The soldier describes a battle in which he was involved, and that he believed the battle occurred on May 10 1864—from my research the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House was fought May 8-21, 1864 near Fredericksburg, so what he describes may have been this battle. He also talks about visiting the cemetery in Fredericksburg where George Washington’s mother is buried and visiting her tomb. Because the letter was written with a hard lead pencil, the writing is quite light but fully legible. Overall condition of letter is good with some expected age conditions—the right and left sides of the horizontal fold crease have separated leaving only the center fold crease holding the letter together. Estimated value: $25-$50. Would make a very good addition to any collection.
Please Read All Terms Carefully before offerding
If there is a shipping fee associated with this item, and if you purchase more than one item which have shipping fees, I do combine fees to lower them as much as possible. I do ship all items USPS First Class mail. So, if the item package weighs 1 ounce or less, the USPS rate for this domestically is 46c, and there is no tracking number available at the First Class rate for what USPS considers letter size envelope. Tracking numbers are only available for what USPS considers First Class package size envelopes, and the rate through 's deal with USPS is $1.69 for the first 3 ounces. In order for me to continue shipping so many of my items FREE, they have to be shipped at the 46c rate.
Cancellations & Descriptions
If the listed item is a used stamp, all cancellations should be considered to be black colored unless otherwise noted to be another color.
Finally, there are times where I might miss something in a description which is noticeable in the picture or pictures, and then there are times when something may not show in the picture or pictures but is pointed out in the description. So, it is important to definitely review both the description and the picture, not just one or the other.
Also, on FDCs, covers and other certain items I am now including an estimated value of the item which is based on research I conduct on as well as other online sites that are retailing various items that fall somewhere within the realm of philately/postal history I tend to sell. I am working to make these estimates fairly realistic, and trying to do it on the conservative side. Please consider them estimates and nothing more if you would.
Please Note: You are buying based on the description above, which is my personal visual perception of the lot, and the pictures posted with this listing. Please read the following carefully: Although I make every effort to correctly describe or attribute items, occasionally description errors do happen, and in such cases I always accept an item back and will make full refund so long as I am notified of the situation within fourteen days of lot receipt.
If you are buyer who is seeking absolute perfection with the item you are looking to offer on, please contact me before offerding detailing the imperfections you do not want the item to have. I have a number of buyers who do just this, and it helps me greatly in making sure they get what they want.
Second, if for any reason there is a problem with an item after the sale, please contact me immediately by email, before doing anything else, so that I can work with you to fix the problem as best possible. As nearly all my buyers will attest, I am very straight forward with problems. Because I ship nearly all of my items USPS First Class mail (the 1 ounce 46c domestic rate for the most part), over past 1.5 years about one item a month, sometimes two, will go missing in the USPS system. Sounds like it is a lot, but I have shipped 300-500 items a month over the past 1.5 years, so I guess my USPS shipping losses are to be somewhat expected. Also, if it is a screw up on my part (don't like making mistakes but I do), I will admit to this and again do my best to work it out with you.
At this time, I only accept PayPal. Also note that if you decide to pay by PayPal eCheck, I will ship your item only after your eCheck clears through PayPal. Payment would be appreciated within 5 business days of sale end. If you need more time than this, please email me with expected payment date. A good example of this is: I have many buyers who offer in a subsequent sale or sales I am holding, and they email to let me know this so that all items they win can be combined into one shipment which means payment will be delayed until the subsequent sale or sales end.
