Re: NCC-2541 is canonical
I think it has to do with knowing
it's supposed to be 2541. It definitely ends with two different digits.
The last digit isn't wide enough at the top to be a 7, so it could really only be a 1. The second to last digit could only be a 4.
It looks like 2541 to me without trying to focus too much.

“Well, It’d be the 19th century for me, one of Napoleon’s marshals.
The chance to march across Europe with the greatest general of all time and kill Belgians” - (White Hole).
