 Confederate Patriotic Covers Minimize

Patriotic covers are often considered the aristocrats of Confederate Philately.  There are hundreds of designs known, and from many states they are not dramatically scarce.  This is not true in the case of Arkansas.  The small number of Arkansas Patriotic covers makes them expensive and prized.  Below are all the Patriotic covers I have seen, both mailed from within Arkansas and mailed from other states to Arkansas.
