That's a great letter - thx for posting. It provides some more pieces to the puzzle.

I was almost considering buying it but it costs several times what I paid for the counterstamp.

Perhaps ā instead of a. Although it makes a subtle difference, the meaning remains clear.

Ssst! The difference between ā and a is that a is a verb and ā is a preposition (?) Here, it is used as a verb, so a is correct. Par contre, rouler desssus is translated English, not French (rouler avec, rouler sur). Together with pneu that should have been pneus for a deux roues, I would say this was translated and printed in Britain.
