  • Support as nominator --Spongie555 (talk) 03:13, 22 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment In my opinion, contrast and brightness could be increased just a bit. Also, what does "ein tanitschar" mean? Jujutacular talk 03:42, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Ein Tanitschar means "A Janissary" in German. Spongie555 (talk) 04:25, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Increased the contrast and brightness per request. --RA (talk) 15:59, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Support As per nom. SMasters (talk) 16:57, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose Very dark; A curves adjustment, concentrating on the top right, would improve this greyish scan. Also needs a little sharpening. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:50, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

Not Promoted --Makeemlighter (talk) 03:49, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

  • Only 4 supports. Probably worth re-nominating, particularly if the change Adam recommended is made. Makeemlighter (talk) 03:49, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
