Happy to oblige. I'm right handed, and here's my report : when drawing a circle quickly, there was a 'curlycue' going into the circle, on the left side towards the bottom. Nothing like what you describe. The only way I can draw a circle without an overlap or curlyque, is to write it... s l o w l y.Quote
My handwriting slants forward. His circles appear to be left handed. I need a right handed person to test this, but from the looks of it his circles start and stop at the same place mine do.
I also tried putting a dot inside the circle. A quick dot looks like a dot over an "i" and is not obvious enough. I had to scribble a bit to make the dot more apparent. This might account for the appearance of Vyse's "dot" looking a little like blurred lines.
Conclusion; I agree with you. Vyse's handwriting does not look cautious, deliberate, or made with any attempt to be neat. Looks like he wrote in haste which makes for all kinds of blurs and scratches.
