Is This A Real 400 year Old Torah Fragment Leave a comment

A customer brought this to me. He bought it on eBay for$80. They described as being four hundred years old. He wants to know if I think it is really that old. I am not an expert in antique judaica but to me this looks like a fake. The writing looks too flat, the klaf looks too much like the deerskin that is used today, and the writing doesn’t follow the סירטוט yet it is still perfectly straight!

See how my straight edge goes perfectly along the tops of the letters? How could that be?
