Whose Hand Is This?

I was paging through the Google Books page images of the Vital Records of Medfield, Massachusetts to the Year 1850, and came across this image just before page 214:



There are three images of pages with blurry partially turned pages in this book.  Fortunately, all of the blurry pages were included with good page images, but I was surprised to see this hand.

I wonder whose hand it is?  Male or female?  Did they chew their nails?  How was this missed by Google quality control?

Left Handed-male in my op. But looking at the bottom right of this picture, it seems that this picture was "doctored".

Randy, I found some hands on microfilm this week at the Family History Library! The pages were blurry and re-photographed on the next image. But I thought about your fingers!
