CSA 10a, 10¢ milky blue, Frameline with huge margin at right displaying complete frameline, partial framelines at top and bottom, tied by clear strike of MOBILE / ALA // JUL / 12 double-circle datestamp on fresh cover to Mrs. A. G. Duggar, Macon, Marengo County, Ala.,1983 CSA. certificate, SCV $3,250. $2,900.

Macon, Alabama, also known as Macon Quarters, is an unincorporated community in Calhoun County, not Marengo County. It was named after Macon, Georgia. There was a post office there from 1891-1903. This cover is clearly addressed to Macon, Marengo County, Alabama. The Duggar Family Letters (1861-1865) may be found in the Auburn University Digital Library. These are letters to and from the Duggar family, clearly stated as from Marengo County, Alabama, during the Civil War. There apparently were two small communities of this name in Alabama. Helbock lists Macon in Marengo County from 1833-1861 with Rarity 5 (from there, not to). Likely, the Marengo County town died and the Calhoun County one took hold afterward. To a scarce Alabama town.
