Good case in point regarding writing on covers. I recently acquired this printed circular on eBay. It's a schedule of exams for Harvard College dated May 17, 1858. The plating on the front is wrong--the stamp is 79R7, not 39R7 (this is already erased). There is a 99.9 percent chance that the other pencil notations on front are non-contemporaneous and will probably be erased as well.

One good thing is that I don't see a lot of cover front writing that appears recent. I think that the practice has slowed significantly.

This is probably the most bone-headed example that I have.

The plate 2 crack has now moved to the right pane. Who knew?

I am surprised that we don't see a lot of covers with a big rubber stamp on back saying "This cover passed through Joe's Stamp Shop, PO BOX 123, Anywhere USA. Write us with your want list."

Staying with the writing on covers topic, an example of identifications changing over the years.
Likely when #25 TI was written on this cover it was identified correctly.
But it's know considered T II and a #25A.

Another reason to dislike this practice.
