So, why would there be a postmark on this money order?
And what is the stamp on the back? And what does it say?
Here is the envelope, and you can see the postmark on it. Notice that it even has the time, 10:30 AM.
So, why would there be a postmark on the money order? And this money order supposedly got deposited on March 13. So, you would have to believe that Oswald mailed the letter on March 12; it got delivered to Klein's in Chicago on March 13, and on that very same day, they also deposited it, as part of a $13,000 deposit. That's the story. But, that stamp on the back is not by First National. They didn't have a stamp for every customer. That's the customer's endorsement stamp. You know that checks have to be endorsed. If it's only one or two, you just sign them. But, if it's a whole stack, it would take a lot of time; hence, the convenience and usefulness of an endorsement stamp. Here's a model that's similar. Usually, they include "For Deposit Only" as this one does:
But regardless, that is definitely what this is, an endorsement stamp of Klein's.
So, this money order didn't go anywhere. But, eleven days later, on March 23, it got initialed by three people, and then a fourth person on the following day? Who are those people? And why would they be initialing and dating the money order? And it looks like the same handwriting. At least, the first three look like the same handwriting, but with slightly different formations done on purpose by the same person. Handwritings tend to vary a lot.
