That's perfectly true. However, people who are skilled Pitman writers often don't bother with the 'thicks and thins', especially if they are writing something that only they will have to read back.I think Pitman's relies on not only the shape but the thickness of the characters
Sanskrit?Not even sure if this is shorthand though it's been suggested to me that it could be Pitman's Shorthand.
I found it scrawled on one of the plates of an English double fusee I'm currently working on.
I'm used to names and dates, but nothing like this and I wondered if it has any meaning.

When you look at a very large view of this image the images are on the brass plate and have been covered by other items.
Do you have a photo of the brass plate with everything removed that is covering the "text"?
I didn't realise it was sideways, it's just the way it presented itself.I agree - it would be very helpful to have a photo of the complete plate, and preferably not sideways!
