The second bag in the post-office ?

LHO usually wrote an unexisting address on the section 3 for his Postbox-applications (checked the instructions "all but special delivery" and further he would mention a fake address.

Again, I cannot speak to the rules/regulations of 1963, since I worked for the renamed/revamped USPS some 24 years later, but during my tenure you had to have two forms of ID in order to prove your physical address in order to rent a PO box.  If using a fake address, he (LHO) would have had to produce fake ID's as well.  I realize he could probably do this, but it adds another wrinkle and deviates from the Ocam's Razor theory or KISS (keep it simple stupid) principle.  It would have been simpler to use a real address and make fake rent and other documents to prove you lived there.  In the post office there is always the chance you will be caught up by someone who has a good memory and knows all the local streets.

Jean Paul:

Nassau Circle is not Nassau Street. I am sure you are aware of this.

Indeed, I was trying to say a fake adress would not have to be a problem, if LHO was sure what they would to with such a package. He was using fake adresses with postal service PO box appl. (in part 3 for spec. delivery) a number of times, and that was no problem, untill there actually was a special delivery, who knows.

The ID's (Selective Service card) LHO had, did not show an address at the time, at least not that I know of.  One in his own name, and a fake one showing Alek James Hidell. All alledgedly for all I know
