Selling A chabad Megila to a "Regular" Jew and more


Mishna Brurah תרצא ס"ק כ holds that if aseres is not at bottom of column as in so called chabad megila the megila is kosher only bdieved and should be used to read in public only when other megila is not available.
Vav of Veizasa (I heard that the late Lubavitcher Rebbe received a regular megila from his father in law the previous rebbe, The current chabad megila is written according to the megila written by the rebbe the moharash- and the late rebbe received a megila in this style as a present from a chasid-this then became the standard chabad megila)
According to pre megadim if vav of veizasa is not zakufa different megila should be used  (שעה"צ סק כ)
Mishna Brurah (שעה"צ סק יד) writes that nowadays we do not make the vav of veizasa zakufa
How should we write it?
in ksav ari I always make sure the vav is zakufa. In ksav Beis Yosef  I dont know -I would say that since its a kosher vav why not do it and be yotze the pri megadim.

THE BRIGHT SIDE OF CHABAD MEGILA IS that it has mehudar gilyonos. Most megilos do not have the proper gilyonos even after using most kulos.
gilyon should be:
  Meleches Shamyim
3 etzbaot on top
4 etzbaot on bottom
Keses
2 etzbaos on top
3 etzbaos on bottom.

Meleches Shamayim:
gilyon counted from top of lamed and from bottom of long chaf
keses -gilyon counted from most letters.

THE RABBIS GIVING HECHSHER ON KLAF ARE SOMECH ON THE KULA THAT THESE SIZES ARE FOR A YERIA  LONG AN AMA AND AS THE KLAF BECOMES SMALLER  THE GILYONOS CAN BECOME SMALLER.

  1. The bright side:

    The 10 sons of Haman are not enlarge as there is no Mesorah for those to be enlarged.

    There is the requisite space between the names and the "ve'es".

    1. Indeed you are correct which is why the 11 line megillah has gained a lot of popularity recently as it has the aseres Bnai homon NOT enlarged but in its own amud.

      The downside: it's a handful to use when folding (unless it has very small osiyos..but then the downside would be that it's hard to read)...

  2. From an email:

    Question, up to what point do people need to take care that aseres should be at the bottom of the column? I have an old 19 line sefardic megillah that has the aseres b'nei haman at the top written in the normal manner. Picture is in a previous post here: http://www.stamforum.com/2015/10/care-for-old-megillat-esther.html
