    Does the paper pass the 'black light' test?

    To me...no.

    Cheers

    Edit: Why? To me the writing looks to be done on a printer. However, I'd be more than happy to be proven incorrect.

    I am not familiar with such a test? Paper study only visually.

    In this case, "Charge" means "Rank"...The words "Name", "Land"(State) and "Religion" are spelled the same in English as in German...The paper may be a replacement, but the wording and format are correct when compared with originals...

    Hi, the black light test is done with a UV lamp. Modern paper fluoresces under the light & old paper doesn't, cheers, Richard.
