He was 18 years old when he filled out this form.

It sold at auction in the spring of this year for $221,747.

It's returning to the auction block again in the near future.

Find the 12 differences

Screen Shot 2021-07-22 at 10.47.11 AM copy

I have always loved doing these sorts of visual puzzles.

Every Sunday the Washington Post features a new one in its Second Glance feature.

The original photo always appears above, the one with 12 subtle alterations below.

Fair warning: some of the differences are exquisitely fine.

Pro tips:

Rotate and/or invert the images to gain a different perspective

• Take a break, then come back after your brain's had a chance to reset

I used to do those two things but now prefer the straight shot, unaltered by image shift or cortical refreshment.

Have at it.
