File:Dad-Shellback-Cert-Shrunk to 11Mpixels.jpg
Original file (4,000 × 2,827 pixels, file size: 3.19 MB, MIME type: image/jpeg)
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, email@example.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.
