Any opinions as to what this mark above the E5 represents?
Seeing as the blob under it looks like it was a D that has been messily corrected to an E, I'd guess that's a rather curly 'E'.
Ahh, that makes sense - there are 2 occurrences of this in tunes 454 and 455, both above splodgy Es.  What is it they say, "When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses not zebras" - when you see an "E" ...  (:)

I've completed my allocation of tunes nos. 44 - 78.
Files attached, if you want to see what I've done and my methodology for N: fields, etc.

Ta. I completed the first rough transcription of tune nos. 1-43 this morning, and now need to go
through 'proof-reading'. Your file will be a valuable aid to ensuring that I comply as far as possible
with the VMP 'standard'.

Doh! More dumb questions from a first-timer:

1) some bars are split across two lines - do we record that in our notes?
2) there are some instances where one tune ends, and another starts in mid-line - do we record that in our notes?

Or is this too much detail? Thank you for your patience, folks.

 I wouldn't. Tunes starting mid line and lines split across the bar are just the result of trying to save paper. The back-to-back repeats between tunes can be ignored too. Tunes may or may not have been played as a non-stop medley but we don't know, so shouldn't assume they were. All IMHO of course.

What Anahata said.
With respect to the back-to-back repeats between tunes, I normally put a repeat double bar line |: at the very start of the tune. All the tunes I've transcribed thus far seem to need a repeated A-music.
