I never knew about the jagged edges on a indenture :confused: Thanks to Bargain Hunt i now know :biggrin:

a legal contract written in duplicate on the same sheet, with the copies separated by cutting along a jagged (toothed, hence the term "indenture") line so that the teeth of the two parts could later be refitted to confirm authenticity
