Likut Sifrey Sta"m?

I have been trying to learn the halachot of k'tivat sta"m, however, I am still looking for the relevant sefarim, seeing as the ones on Hebrewbooks.org are mostly illegible. One sefer that I've noticed is Likut Sifrey Sta"m. Does anyone know how good this sefer is? Is the type clear? The illustrations? Are there any alternatives which are likely a better choice?

On talking with a sofer in the NY area, I was advised to wait on this sefer and to look instead at Mishnat Hasofer. Does anyone know if it's possible to find this for under $30US?

ז וַיַּךְ שָׁאוּל, אֶת-עֲמָלֵק, מֵחֲוִילָה בּוֹאֲךָ שׁוּר, אֲשֶׁר עַל-פְּנֵי מִצְרָיִם.  ח וַיִּתְפֹּשׂ אֶת-אֲגַג מֶלֶךְ-עֲמָלֵק, חָי; וְאֶת-כָּל-הָעָם, הֶחֱרִים לְפִי-חָרֶב.  The sofer must have accidentally skipped a line leaving out the bolded letters above.  How would you go about adding it in?

Yud without a Rosh?

Regel and kotz but no Rosh?

The worst fraudulent Mezuzah ever. They didn't even bother!
