Help With Character ID


Recommended Posts


Hello. I've attached a copy of 4 Chinese handwritten characters that I'm not able to read. I do OK with standard font style 汉字 but handwritten characters still throw me for a loop. I think the first character is 丁 but I wouldn't take that to the bank. Thanks for your help.

It should be 丁亥年書. Simple form is 丁亥年书, which means 'written in the lunar calendar Year Dinghai'. BTW, this year, 2007, is just 丁亥年.
