Answer: It does not show up on a scan because there is no contrast between the raised seal and the rest of the document. The colors on the raised seal are exactly the same as the rest of the paper.<quoted text>
Does this mean you gave up on the color LIE, SHEEPLE?
Regardless of what side you are looking at, you can either see an embossed or debossed area!
Psst SHEEPLE, it is a RAISED VISIBLE SEAL!
DUH, It can be seen on both sides regardless of what color the paper is.
One side is raised or embossed, and the other side is debossed.
Yep. I'm SMEllen1!
What exactly is a straight-aheaded picture???
Yes, the seal is raised on one side and debossed on the other. But neither is visible in a scan. The raised seal would be visible if photographed from the side (as the photograph of the raised seal on the short form by FactCheck demonstrates), but the long form is not shown from the side. It is scanned with the paper flat on the scanner.
A "straight-ahead picture," duh, is one that is not from the side.
