I'm not sure I would say its wrong-- but as an interpreter, I give back whatever I see-- there is no 'wrong' (from a deaf person!). I have seen deaf folks sign 2 thousand 7, but they were English signers, not ASL.

So the first one that I wrote in this attached it wrong? I  
thought that came from our old DAC work years ago...

In other words, if we were to publish a new ASL Dictionary written in  
SignWriting, how would you write the numbers in the thousands?, like:


Because I want to do that...publish and print a new dictionary in  
SignWriting one of these days, and I find the numbers fascinating  
because there are so many various ways to sign them...
