I thought he was referring to the fact that it appears that Washington's hat seems to be IN FRONT of the word Poughkipsie. Anyway, that's the first thing I saw.
First thing I saw too. It looks most odd. Any chance of a close-up of the 'Hat' area.
I only noticed the 'hew' after it was mentioned by alanl...also looks odd.
An odd stamp, one might say.
