The Lake Village type set PAID 5 is the only Arkansas stampless item ever considered for the possibiltiy that this was a Postmaster's Provisional. So far, no unused example has been found. However, the uprated PAID 5 with 10 ms over the top suggestes that the envelope with PAID 5 was already in the hands of the user. Otherwise, why stamp PAID 5 and then immediately change the rating to 10? At any rate, the Lake Village markings are some of the most spectacular extant from Arkansas.
February 24 1862 Lake Village usage found October 2008 in Bruce Ball auction from 1976.
