The engraved lines may vanish as well as cracks may form in the parchment and also letters.
Also though mezuzos are made largely to offer the requirements of those preferring to meet the mitzvah of positioning them on the doorposts of the home, the stunning fact is that several mezuzah scrolls are not kosher.
