Thanks in advance. Still trying to figure out how to get the best photos with my new USB microscope camera. The focus knob is pretty coarse.

As to the reverse, I have seen this before.
Early Whitman folders had a "gluey" substance in the hole which
creates the vertical pattern that you see.
I know of no cure for this 'damage.'
Brother, can you spare a "BARBER" dime?

I can't spot the vertical pattern you mention.

Is an acetone bath something that is actually employed? Or is that "cleaning"
