Here we are again. Both items suspicious as I see it: In the first instance, would Mr Wright have advertised to a client---or indeed admitted to anyone---that he intended to have an apprentice "assist with the
design" of a project ?

In the second case, would Mr Wright have misspelled "grateful" ? Is the added date likely ? And, is the provenance card written with one of the same blue pens that we see used in some of these signatures ?

The signatures themselves need to be studied. The Ls in Lloyd are oddly careless---and as has already been mentioned, some of the signatures are too nearly identical. Assuming the Mile-High letterhead is
genuine (I've not seen it before), could it have been pilfered as a blank, to be employed later by a forger ?

Finally, was "Stacy Steadman" a '50s apprentice /
