Here is a recent acquisitions that purports to be "The Original Crosby Photo Cover," see scan of reverse below. I purchased the cover for its corner card inscription claiming to be the inaugural meeting of the Cover Collectors of America, Chapter 2, in Washington D.C on May 5th, 1940.
Is this a bona fide Crosby cover?
What about the claim to be "The Original Crosby Photo Cover? Surely there were Crosby photo covers before May 1940. Does this inscription appear on other Crosby covers of the time period, or, perhaps, the language of the back stamp is imprecise and it should read "An Original Crosby ... ."
Any insights from Crosby cover collectors?
