Crossing-The-Line Shellback Certificate for Ensign Robert Clovis Fay (Senior) aboard USS Diphda (AKA-59) on 28 August 1945. See Wikipedia:Line-crossing_ceremony and Wikipedia:USS_Diphda_(AKA-59).

This image was made by scanning the four quadrants of the 19 3/4 x 13 7/8 inch (503 x 353 mm) certificate at 600 dpi with a Xerox DocuMate 515, then stitching them together. Please ignore any seams, and the white tape at some of the edges. Scanned 3/14/16 and uploaded to Wikipedia 3/15/16, soon after my dad died.

Then I had the 3/15/16 image cleaned up by PhoJoe.com October 2017 (PhoJoe.com, 5799 S. Main St. #67, Clarkston, Michigan 48347, info@phojoe.com). You can see the original here.

This is an 11 megapixel scale of the original (one eighth, or ~4000x2800) because MediaWiki cannot make thumbnails of anything larger than 12.5 megapixels (the original is 11,876 x 8,393 = 99,675,268 pixels). If one can't make a MediaWiki thumbnail, it is effectively no longer a graphic, but is instead just a file. For the actual full resolution 17,857,554 byte file, see here (click on "Original File" on that page to see the image).
