High-resolution copy, courtesy of Michael Butterfield:



Assuming that the image above is a genuine facsimile and not an artistic (re)interpretation, it goes a long way toward illustrating just how much difference a high-resolution scan can make with regards to character formations and/or flourishes. Notice, for example, the curling tail end on the letter d, which appears to be little more than a speck of ink in the copy posted upthread -



Something to bear in mind re: handwriting comparisons.
