I recently heard that in Belz they changed the Shin on the Tefilin Shel Rosh due to an old pair that was found that the Rebbi believed to be the true Mesorah. Is this true? How does the new Shin compare to the regular Shin that either Ashkenazim, Sefardim or Chabad uses? A photo showing the difference would be appreciated.
