Description:

Washington DC intracity patriotic cover franked with US Scott 65.

Richard Matta mentioned that many of those covers may have originated in camps in captured (or retained) parts of northern Virginia and carried back to DC for posting. So, as Ken L suggests, not really originating and delivered at the same PO. Thus the 3 cent rate rather than 1 cent.

Thanks to Richard Matta and Ken Lawrence for clarifying the rate on this cover.
