Eidsness Controversy


A controversy exists because someone dated the cover with a Oct. 12, 1922 and then crossed out the month and replaced it with a July. Was it an honest mistake or was someone (Eidsness) up to no good? The letter, as indicated above the cover, is dated July. A closer look at the postmark on the cover adds more fuel to the controversary. Some people, when viewing the actual cover, think that the month within the postmark looks more like OCT than JUL. Unfortunately there is no receiving post office postmark on the back side of the cover to substantiate the date. What do you think?
