These letters have stumped just about everyone. If someone has figured them out, I have not read about it. Something came to me. They are the same letters as the first letters in PACE FORTY SOUTH. just a different order. South, pace forty? Could it just be a confirmer that we do in fact have to take forty paces south from a starting point?

I noticed the same thing a while back.
I also speculated it could mean Stokes Peabody Friend in a nod to the Wingwood house and its history.
Or maybe it is SPF for sun protection factor, hinting at the sun being important as in Masquerade and given the flagpole certainly resembles a sundial.
But given that it is right out there in the open for all to see in big letters I eventually settled on the likelihood that it doesn't matter to the master riddle or end solve. Of course that's just my opinion, and I always love to hear others'!
Feels like I've been off busy for ages... anyway, I'm totally lost in the context of the SPF bit... so this isn't likely a correct answer... But... Maine is lumber country and most general wood for construction etc... like 2X4's etc... are known as SPF on plans... Spruce Pine and Fir.
That is accurate... but whether applicable or not is up to you...
I do know about the Treasure Hunt... but have never seen the book, but on this visit I saw a post about the fox's mouth lines on an image... indicating somewhere for some reason... but again I have to do some more thinking... and find where that discussion is... but I am pretty sure that isn't the right road... If you know where that discussion is... check and if I haven't posted there soon, let me know here... please
