MS: Actually, no, Creighton, you are failing to understand the point. The material you’ve presented in support of this claim is transcription. Transcription is disambiguating: it entails judgements on what characters were intended. It’s not photorealistic. We don’t have Perring’s drawings and we don’t know that the circles in them were hatched. What we need here is a photographic record of the inscriptions themselves.
SC: Which is why the second slide explains that the disc we see uses a standard, 19th century printer's font for the hatched disc. It certainly is not the printer's font for a plain disc. But we need only to look at Vyse's journal to see what he saw--the disc with three lines, different to what he had previously entered into his journal.
MS: The rest is a fantasy written around the evidence.
SC: Well, of course, on planet Stower this has to be 'fantasy' because you simply have no other way of explaining it with your own narrative. And that, laddie, speaks volumes.
