Re: VMs: Research Note: "1708" Update

Hi everyone,

I can (just about) see the "1708" Robert's talking about: I'd also add that the "7" appears to have a horizontal bar struck through it (ie, it's appears to be a "continental 7"). Though (because it's inverted) written in white?

I'd also caution that this is right at (or possibly just beyond) the limits of perception. At this resolution (1089 x 1349), there really aren't that many dots making up these numerals, and the danger of this being (say) some kind of JPEG artefact is quite high.

My guesses are (a) that a lot of the claimed detail would disappear in a higher resolution (and non-compressed) scan; and (b) that there is actually some kind of subtle design on the top right corner of f1r which we can only barely make out ATM (ie, can you see the three parallel diagonal lines?) which might help explain this kind of detail.

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
