    Abstract

    Businesses are increasingly converting document transporting and storage systems to microfilming systems that ultimately destroy the original document. Consequently, microfilmed documents are being submitted for examination either as questioned or known material. In an effort to aid the examiner in determining the boundaries of handwriting examinations of microfilmed documents, the quality of the microfilmed copies were compared to the original documents. Handwriting characteristics, pen classifiation, simulations, and alterations are discussed.
