Original versus Copied Documents

Posted on August 14, 2015 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (36)
When submitting questioned handwriting documents the handwriting expert will ask  for the original document.  Original documents are always best because they provide the clearest visibility of the strokes ,pen lifts, pressure, eraser marks and other factors in the writing.
Unfortunately, very often, original documents have been destroyed or lost. The handwriting expert can work with copies and most often must do so. Original documents are ideal but not necessary to determine authenticity of a writing. Be sure to provide the best copy available of the handwriting. A scanned version  is preferred over a faxed one as faxed copies often lack strong definition.
