Does anybody have a tikun for the real gra megila where the aseres are the last 11 lines of the column?
(chabad took the ish bereish daf  that ish belongs on top of column and aseres just needs to be on left side of column and the gra took the aseres besof hadaf means end of column and ish bereish daf means right side.)

Megillah of the Rebbe MaHarash

Here is a picture of the Rebbe MaHarash's Megillah.  As can be seen the Asseret Benei Haman are at the top.  However the listing of the names are not STRAIGHT or JUSTIFIED.  Rather, they are indented taking the length of a regular writing without stretching any letters.  The same goes for the word ASERET, it is not justified with the Ve'ETS.

The Rebbe wasn’t a scribe, but his doctor told him he should do detailed work with his hands. So he wrote one Megillah for each of his children.

He only wrote three or four megillahs, one of which is in the Library in New York, and the other by Rebbetzin Carlebach.  The above pictures are from the Carlebach scroll.  It's in remarkable condition for its age (around two hundred years old) with really wonderful handwriting.
