Shin Lacking a Top

What do you think of the shin of 'asher' in the middle of this picture. Is there a top to the shin? If it is a problem, may it be corrected?  

Nice Thought


ר and כ pasul or show to child?

I have two questionable mezuzahs submitted to me by a local client  1) the ר may be mistaken to be a ד in the first ukshartam  and in the other mezuzah 2) the כ has a little line above it that's possible to be mistaken as ל in levavchem. Possul or she'elas tinok?

Poorly Designed Mezuzah Case

  I saw this mezuzah hanging on someone's door post. While the intention was good, this is not an acceptable way to hang a mezuzah - flat, with the writing facing out. It needs to be rolled, with the writing facing inwards. (I was thinking, however, that if the writing was facing out - on display for all to see - perhaps people would care more to buy higher quality STa"M. We live in a society where people like to show off and display expensive and designer items like clothes,  art, cars, furniture etc. If the writing of their mezuzah was on display for all to see, I'm sure many more people would opt for higher end, beautiful writing! Of course, it's not possible....but it would certainly encourage people to buy more mehudar mezuzos.)
