SpaceshipOne Mojave CA Oct 4, 2004 postmark. I've been seeing a lot of them on eBay lately, but I don't think they are authentic USPS postmarks.

Can anyone confirm or provide more information please? eBay lot 190796963746 shows an example. Thank you.

It looks like an ordinary circular post office date stamp (without killer bars) to me. I have seen many of them and also got it on my own covers back in 2004.

On this type of covers, the stamp and then the postmarker are, by the way, the first things to be applied. The silk cachet is then applied by the cover manufacturer thereafter.

I'm no expert but the postmark looks OK to me. I've got similar postmarks from known dealers for more than one mission.

All times are CT (US)
