Nun appears like a Bet

The above Nun of Einekha is confused with a letter Bet.  This is not only due to the width of the OT but also to the KUTZ at it's right hind which gives it the appearance of an EKEV.  How would you rule? Is it straight passul or can it be fixed if a Tinok reads it like a NUN?


  1. I think this is a classic Shaylat Tinok. Especially since there are sources that mention an nun as having an ekev and being like a zayin sitting inside a vav. The only problem is that the tagim may lead the tinok to read it as nun whereas without the tagim he might have read Beis. So practically the only way to do a proper shaylat tinok may be to somehow cover or erase the tagin before.
