A place for English speaking sofrim (scribes), magihim (examiners), rabbis and vendors of Stam (Torah, Tefillin and Mezuzah scrolls) from around the world to communicate, share ideas, ask questions and offer support and advice.
Why is that a Shayla? I clearly see an eikev that is boleit from the bottom.
The BET is Kasher.
I'd also say kosher. I don't even need to zoom in to see the akev.
I agree that it is probably fine but since it is very rounded on top and the akev is very slight it can't hurt to ask a tinok.
As long as there is an ekev, even slight, then it is kosher and the fact that it's rounded is not a factor, particualrly considering that a round head is mehudar for Sephardim. We only ask a tinok when one who is expert in the halacha has determined the need for it. If the letter is kosher then asking a tinok can hurt and if the expert determines it is pasul then a tinok is not an option.
