In these pictures again we see where the head only has a left blita going out from it instead of a normal rosh. Commonly found in Cheaper Ksav Meyuchus. I already sent similar pictures of this on vuv and yud (which I had a chasash of kav mashuch). R' Moshe this is something I could tell the client that these nuns were bidieved and through fixing are now lechatchila? And if I understood correctly they are still fixable since in csav chabad the face of the letter is circled inward with a tendency of the lower shpitz slightly extending further left [a tiny bit] more then the top of the rosh (panim). Therefore the panim of the letter are not equal or straight, as required by AB,BY. ? Thank you

short vav

This megila was offered to me by a sofer. I did not purchase it because of the short vavim, i could purchse 3 of these for a very profitable price. I am wondering what the sochrim feel about selling such a megila, obviously there are many shalas tinoks on these vavs. May such a megila be sold for a discounted price. If a tinok read 4 out of 5 correctly would it be wrong to sell as is?

Parshiyos descending in the titura

What is SA H arav's opinion about parshiyos that descend from the batim into the area of the titura?

If it isn't in its bayis, it is pasul [from the Tora – this is not totafos ]. SA Harav 32:61:   The charitz [crack separating] between the batim must descend till the tfira, if not it is [still] kosher, if it [the charitz] is at least recognized at the top of the bayis… When is this so, when inner separations [mechitzos] were made [added-glued] between the pockets [batim] from the top till the end of the width of the parsha … but if he did not do so [these inner separations] or the leather between each parsha and parsha was torn it is pasul … SAH is clearly teaching – any par
