  1. There are many reasons why I would not invalidate these KAFS.

    1. They retain there appearance, and cannot be confused with a NUN, especially since this is a Ketav Arizal where the Rosh of a NUN is written like a ZAYIN.

    2. Although, the base of the letters appear narrow, the RASHIM have more than the SHIUR of a KOLMOS as can be seen when you compare to the ROSH of the NUN's in the same Ketav. As such, the width of the head, even in a Ketav Sepharadi, where one makes the head of a NUN like a VAV, when in a SAFEK one would make a She'elat TINOK.

    3. Likewise, although the MOSHAV is a bit narrow. However, it is not that narrow as to appear like a RESH.

    Therefore, I say that this KAF retains it's shape. However, if one is in doubt, they should not jump to invalidate it. Rather, the letter must be shown to a TINOK.

  4. I agree with Alberto only with the chaf of anochi , however lachem IMHO is a nun.
    the lamed is kosher, sice most poskim disagree with the chidush of m"b. the Baruch Sheamar calls it a zanav
