Excuse me it's an old topic. However, although I had heard this topic brought up, I never looked at the birth certificate until a friend brought it to my attention during the last election. And, friend, I don't think this is genuine. In fact being an old/old/old secretary/AA/Office Manager, I see some errors I believe I can identify why whoever made this goofed.
I will just address what I see and is one of the things that is questioned i the spacing between the letters. Electric typewriters weren't out there much until the early 60's. In the late 60's they came out with a new, electric with proportional font. Keep in mind this was before word writers/computers. Type looked great but a small a took up one space, a small n took up two spaces and an m three.
Not kidding, really, it did. So if you made a mistake you had to know how many backspaces to go back to the position you needed to correct. If you didn't have this memorized, going back would always be somewhat out of place.
If you didn't use tab faithfully on these typewriters as unprofesssionals usually don't - You can't line it up!!!!
I believe that is why nothing in this birth certificate is lined up (another question about it'ss authenticty)!
Someone went for an old electric typewriter to create it and got one that was proportional type.
Anyone else see other things ?????
