Writing on the Sirtut

I have a mezuzah where the top part of each letter is written on the sirtut. In other words, if the height of the top part of the letter is 1 kolmus, the sirtut runs exactly in the middle, with roughly half over and half under the sirtut.

Is this problematic? I though that the top edge of the letter should touch the sirtut.

How much of the letter needs to be over the sirtut to make it pasul?

  1. kosher. although lechatchila as you wrote should be exactly under/touching the sirtut.

  2. I have seen this Mezuzah hundreds of times over the years. Watch out for round yuds. Many of them have no kotz whatsoever.
