I recently purchased this cover as an autopen. It looks like an autopen to me at glance but looking closer I'm now wondering if it's not. I realize there are slight variations with paper movement when the autopen machines were in use, but I'm not convinced this is autopen. I would appreciate your opinion. Don't be quick to judge. Thank you.

Autopen. If you look at where the ink stops, you'll see a small ball there. That's an AP tell, where it stops and the ink balls. A hand flows and lifts at the end.

Agreed. You can see the machine "quivering" throughout the "Anders" on close examination as well.
