DOCUMENT TITLE: Trademark Ser. No. 73522772, intitials "LRH" first use
SUBJECT: Trademark Ser. No. 73522772, intitials "LRH" first use for goods and services category: "Jewelry, namley pins, badges, necklaces and bracelets"
PARTIES: Purportedly, L. Ron Hubbard; Joan Kuppersmith Larkin, Attorney of Record; Religious Technology Center (RTC), purported "assignee" in fraudulent trademarks "transfer"

BACKGROUND AND NOTES

One of the odder entries in the calvalcade of odd trademark transactions, L. Ron Hubbard is alleged to have first used this at an unspecified date in 1974 for the goods and services of "jewelry, namley pins, badges, necklaces and bracelets." If it was the first part of 1974--which we can only place it at, since the "first use" date is inclusive of 1974--we don't know how in the world he executed such a precise "most stylized presentation of the letters 'LRH'" since, according to Kima Douglas (one of the few people to volunteer accounts of where the missing "L. Ron Hubbard" was and what he was doing when he was missing), Hubbard had recently "broken an arm and several ribs" in a motorcycle accident on the island of Tenerife, and she had "strapped up his arm and strapped his ribs,." and he "slept in a chair as best he could" because "he must have been in agony." But it's a very fine rendering, indeed, don't you think?

This is one of several versions of the name or initials of L. Ron Hubbard that belong entirely, now, to the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), as is spelled out clearly in one of the so-called "Assignment" agreements.

So this is not one of the marks that will be part of the fraudulent "transfer" of marks from "L. Ron Hubbard" to the Religious Technology Center (RTC) on 10 May 1982. This mark is withheld in the estate of L. Ron Hubbard for later transfer, by order of IRS, as part of "Author's Family Trust-B" to the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), who currently has complete ownership in this mark.
