With the threads on 1851 Imperfs and Perfs, I thought I'd add a new one with a few examples of post-1861 demonetization use of the 1857 issue (due to stocks of the stamps remaining in the South post-secession and the desire to make sure they weren't able to monetize the remaining stamps).

Please feel free to add any others to the thread.

Here's one from Leominster, MA:


and here's one from Little Rock, AR:

Those are both really interesting usages.

The "No Go" is cool, and the "Good Will" label is really interesting.

Not a great copy but a clear 1900 date.

Maybe we need a thread for items that are between the '51's and the '57's

Being off cover, the 1900 Attleboro cancel could easily have traveled next to full postage. It could still be done that way today. A curiosity, but not much more, IMO.
