    I had to locate the thread, or I would have posted this earlier, however the pacman/bean/cresent moon shape found on USMC covers should not always be used as a definitive indicator when determining authenticity.

    In any case, for anyone interested in reading, below is a thread from USMF where this "shape" is discussed and photos of different variations of it, from confirmed covers, are posted.

    Hope this is helpful!

    Nice job Eric. They haven't started faking the 53 covers yet.
