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 Harav's opinion about parshiyos that descend from the batim into the area of the titura?
SA Harav 32:55: Totafos mentioned in the Tora chachamim received [the explanation] as 4 [batim] pockets of leather for 4 parshiyos, each parsha in a [special] pocket by itself… "each parsha in a [special] pocket by itself " – each parsha has a designated area - its private bayis. 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 parsha that isn't totally
