    Let's face it. There were just too many hints: dark blue-black, iron gall and "old school." And it's only one of two IG inks I use anymore (the other being old MB-B/BL).

    Stand by for the next challenge....

    It's night, but I took the photo under the LED lights over my dining table, using my iPhone 8. I checked the image against the original on the screen of my MacBook, and it is good for color, but after uploading to FPGeeks, it appears to have lost a bit of orientation towards green on the same screen. There's been no adjustment to the image other than file size reduction to 1200x900. I'll take a photo under daylight tomorrow if the ink isn't identified before then.

    Hints will be dribbled out, as is customary.

    First useless hint: It's not a permanent ink.

    EDITED TO ADD: Taken THE NEXT DAY in cloudy daylight, with a couple of blotted drips for good measure.

    One of my favorites, and a reasoned guess. But that's not it.

    Third (and obtuse) hint: verdigris relates to the wrong "metal."

    That's a good guess, similar hue. Actually I want to try that out sometime but not Diamine Marine.
