The gemara in Sanhedrin 21 brings a discussion regarding what script the Torah was givin . One opnion holds that the Torah was given in ksav Ivri (luchos prob given in ksav ashuris according to all). Then Ezra introduced ksav ashuris and from then on only ksav ashuris would be kosher for Stam (Sifrei Torah, Teffilin,and Mezuzos). My question is what would be the status of a Torah written before Ezra introduced ksav ashuris, do we say it is passul to use since only ashuris can be used now ,or we say its kosher since it was kosher before and in a sense is grandfathered in?
