Greg Ciesielski noticed the rubber stamp applied to the back of B8.  The rubber stamp
on back shows "Number 1 of 82".  The "1" and "82" are written by hand.

The "82" is the total number of covers Mr. Beck printed.

We compared the handwriting to that of Mr. Beck and determined that Beck did not write
these numbers.

You can see his handwriting of numbers on his printing log shown on this site.

We examined 3 other examples of B8 and none of them had the
rubber stamp on the back of the cover.

Most cancels are poor quality.

Except for the covers shown below, all covers observed until 2010, also have Boston MC July 31 on face of cover.
