CONSPIRACY THEORIST WALT CAKEBREAD SAID:
>>> "Hey Von Pea Brain... Waddya say ....How about using yer own eyes?? Let's you and I take a look and see if a couple of amatuers [sic] can spot anything that the "experts" coulda overlooked. Let's take a look at the Money order first. How about the capital "H" in Hidell? You'll notice that the "H" has a "flag" at the top of the left-hand vertical bar. Did Oswald ever make a Capital "H" in this manner?" <<<
DAVID VON PEIN SAID:
Yes. Many times. (See below.)
>>> "I haven't been able to find a single instance where Oswald ever made a capital "H" in that manner." <<<
Then you didn't look very hard...because I found multiple examples of Oswald writing the capital letter "H" in just such a manner (and it only took me five minutes to find these several examples, so I'm sure there are several more where these came from).
It would appear from the bulk of his correspondence that Oswald didn't normally put the "tail" at the top-left of his capital Hs when he wrote his name. But I found at least one instance when he did do just that -- in Warren Commission Exhibit No. 820-A.
Lee normally, though, didn't put the "tail" on the capital letter H in his signature. But whenever he would capitalize the letter H in a sentence, the "tail" would be present, just like we find it on the Money Order for the rifle.
The following example is the first one I looked at when researching this "Capital H" matter. It's Oswald's Book Depository work application that he filled out on October 15, 1963 (CE496):
The above document is important to show that Walt is full of feces, because it reveals a COMBINATION of different "Capital H" variations within the very same document.
On that application, LHO signed his name without the tail [or "flag"] on the letter H. But we can see that TWICE elsewhere on the application, Oswald does include the tail on a capital H -- when he wrote "Heights" (in "Arlington Heights") and "Honorable" (in "Honorable Discharge", which, of course, was one of several lies that Oswald told on that application, btw; more on that can be found HERE, if anyone's interested).
Want more? OK......
Here's another "Capital H" example, with the extra tail attached to it, via CE780 (see the word "However", which starts the document's third paragraph).
And then we have CE784-A, which shows various samples of Oswald's known handwriting, including two examples of how LHO wrote the word "However" -- with the capital "H" looking just exactly as we find it on the Money Order for the rifle and in CE780 and on Oswald's work application.
The U.S. Postal Money Order:
Are all of the above examples of Oswald's handwriting just more of the many documents (with the tail/"flag" on the Hs) that you think are fake, Walt?
Or could it be that you're just a piss-poor researcher?
I'll vote for the latter.
>>> "Do you have the guts to try to continue the examination of the writing on those documents?" <<<
After I just thoroughly and handily embarrassed you regarding this "Letter H" matter, are you sure that YOU actually wish to continue with your unsupportable "NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE REGARDING ANYTHING CONNECTED TO LEE HARVEY OSWALD" fairy tale?
Let's hear your next hunk of CTer brilliance in the category of: "IT WASN'T OSWALD'S HANDWRITING, EVEN THOUGH MULTIPLE EXPERTS WHO ARE PAID TO EXAMINE SUCH THINGS SAID IT WAS HIS WRITING."
I love watching a conspiracy fish flounder.
