Phony Postmark

10 Blue Type II Keating & Ball on what appears
to be a late usage cover Mississippi to Tennessee

Cover has a genuine period address which probably started as a hand carried letter. The KB Type II stamp is genuine used with a Mobile, Ala postmark on the stamp. The stamp has been added to the cover, and the remainder of the postmark on the cover drawn in so that it appears to be a very desireable late usage from Mississippi to Tennessee. A very well done fake that could fool almost anyone at first glance.
