court clerk stamp

At first I thought it says "MAILED" but that doesn't seem to work...or does it? If you're familiar with court clerk stamps perhaps you can give advice as to what this is? Thank you.

    "Very old case in 1995"? I have active memories of 1995... For me "very old case" should be at least before WWII.

    @user132647 I live in the UK so feel that "very old case" should be reserved for anything pre-1900. 1995 is basically yesterday!

    Do you have a link to an online version of the document in question? Aside: 1995 is anything but "very old". The internet existed in 1995. There should be an online reference available if it is from 1995. I would call something from 1895 old (but not "very old"). Something from 1795 might be deemed "very old" from a US perspective, but not from a European perspective. Dec 20, 2022 at 17:37

FILMED

The document was archived onto microfilm.

User @Dai used the font Myriad Pro Bold to overlay this onto the image:

    @RBarryYoung 3 solid corners on the firs tletter lend credability to it being "F", I can see the "L" and the "D", and the shape of the "M" is certainly probable

    Here's what I came up with after messing around in Photoshop for a few minutes - I don't know exactly what typeface that the court's rubber-stamps use, but Myriad Pro Bold lines up very well: i.stack.imgur.com/stA1d.png

    @Dai My only problem with your edit is you didn't give yourself enough credit!

    If the font fits, you must upvote it. Dec 21, 2022 at 17:20
