 Arkansas CSA Stampless from H Postoffices Minimize
Next to Little Rock, Helena has the most CSA stampless covers extant. 22 different covers have been sold/reported.  Those I have images of are presented below.  The PAID 5 handstamp appears on only 3, plus two covers with this handstamp uprated to 10 manuscript.  Why the Helena postmaster never used a 10 handstamp is unknown.  Helena was occupied by the Union on July 15, 1862.  The reason so many Helena covers still exist when many other Arkansas towns are either unique or have only 2-3 covers is that much of the Helena correspondence was to Carroll, Hoy in New Orleans, and the covers were recovered from thier legenday cover cache.
