MB 100th

Today, 19 Heshvan 5767, is the 100th anniversary of the Chofetz Chaim's completion of the Mishneh Berurah -- arguably the most important Torah work of the past century.

See the bottom line of the last page of vol. 6: "Siyamti ba-hesed Hashem Yitbarakh be-yom 19 la-hodesh Marheshvan 5667" (Completed with God's grace on the 19th of Marheshvan 5667 = November 7, 1906).

Is it just the word "mugah" that is in the CHofetz Chaim's handwriting?
