F Grill. So far off center, this stamp probably qualifies as a freak.  Large portion of adjacent stamp showing at left.  Stamp is sound.

 japan-world-war-II-Japanese-Navy-historical-ephemera JAPAN - WORLD WAR II JAPANESE NAVAL DOCUMENT TO SAILORS - SEE DESCRIPTION

Interesting Japanese Naval document from World War II.  A Navy Commander issued orders for maintaining living standard and job arrangements for sailors-on-duty. The stamp itself is common. However the original document would have significant value if it were more than a fragment since it was printed right before Japanese surrender (April, 1945) and the issuer was one of the Japanese Navy leaders. Too bad there is only a fragment of the document left. It could have been a much more valuable item for WW II collectors.

virginia-richmond-confederate-cover-to-mayesville-south-carolina-civil-war VIRGINIA - RICHMOND CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA CIVIL WAR COVER TO MAYESVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA COVER WITH #11 STAMP

Cover condition typical. Stamp looks like it was at bottom of sheet and torn by hand around three sides.  However, there are four margins, close only at top right. There is a B. F. Wilson listed as a 2nd Lieutenant with the 7th Regiment South Carolina Cavalry. This is quite possible the cover for a letter he sent back to his wife.
