    Transmission of documents via facsimile machines is becoming more common today. Can a document examiner use a facsimile copy of a handwritten document to perform an examination? This article examines facsimile copies of documents prepared with various writing instruments to determine how accurately they reflect the original. Facsimile copies of altered documents are also examined to determine if evidence of the alteration can be seen on the facsimile copy.
