  • Support as nominator DurovaCharge! 20:37, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Support seems a bit small to me, but I think the historic value makes up for that. -- Grandpafootsoldier (talk) 22:02, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
    • Click through to see it full size; this is actually one of the larger images up for FP candidacy. The thumbnail shows 250 horizontal pixels, so the appearance of smallness is just a byproduct of the aspect ratio. DurovaCharge! 22:49, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
      • Ah, I see. It was just the particular monitor I was using at the time. -- Grandpafootsoldier (talk) 02:43, 20 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Support per nom. —αἰτίας discussion 22:38, 20 February 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose quality is largely unsatisfactory. As I understand nom picture's original is this, so nom is cleaned up also. I remonstrate with this as well.M.K. (talk) 09:51, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
    • Yes, the nomination does specify that this is a restored version of that other image, and the image page specifies the alterations that were performed. Why the remonstration? This is already fully disclosed. DurovaCharge! 10:42, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
