At a mail auction in December 2006 I had won the shown Overland Mail cover which was described as having a Overland Mail cachet type HS-91.

Upon closer inspection I strongly believe that the yellow "cachet" is not a cachet but a manuscript marking in form of a hand stamp only. Also the size of the marking does not correspond to the marking in the Collins handbook.

Another lead is that the "Air Mail registered" manuscript mark is stroked out in the same color as the overland mail "cachet"...

Any comments are highly appreciated.
