Thanks! I develop these overlays by importing an actual photo of the date into Adobe Illustrator, and tracing the digits directly, then importing into Photoshop for the final work. The digits vary–sometimes dramatically–from year-to-year, so I’m building sets of overlays for each date. This also involves some interpretation, particularly for 1865–since the tops of digits vary so much from the bases.
