YS: If you will view the photo under magnification, you will see that a few
pixels of the upper portion of the Waw and the Aleph touch each other. It
only a few pixels, and the lighter pixels around them mean that under low
magnification the display averages them up as a gap, but the darker pixels
do connect both parts.
JCR: Sounds like digital reconstruction to me. You do go on to mention the
importance of viewing the originals but as you can't you rely on what those
who saw them say. You are in essence performing a reconstruction of a
digital image guided by what you see in the pixels and what people who saw
the original say about it. If you don't call this reconstruction then...
