A problematic Lamed
In the ל of Leahava, it has seemingly a double problem. 1) the head is short like a yud
2) the rosh of the lamed is like it is not existent, being that beneath it, there was dio added to it.
The Lishkat Hasofer 5:17 is machshir bidieved (vitzorech Litaken) on each individual case (however when it is missing a rosh it is only fixable beshas hadchak , without making a bracha on it).
My question is, when both of these problems arise on the same Lamed can and should we machshir it?
I will note that this is for a Sefardi.
