Yes, that image was never compressed with a lossy compression method (like JPEG), we can see that it has much more detail and no compression
By closest to the original I mean certain object does not appear in the same image hosted at NASA History site. I am assuming the object was
removed in NASA History version rather than the object being added to archive.org version.
I think your assumption is exactly the opposite of what happened, as that TIFF image has several marks of cloning (or copy and paste) actions, as you
can see in the images below.
What did you mean by vertical lines and copy/paste?
In the left it's "your" image, with "my" image in the right (taken from the Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth)
(I hope it works, I have never tried to post two images side by side
You can see that on "my" image there's some vertical lines, from top to bottom. In "your" image the lines are also there, but not as noticeable, but
you can see what looks like some attempts at removing the lines (or at least, being close to the lines, that's what I think was more likely).
If you follow the vertical line you can see, to the left, several areas that appear duplicated (always horizontally), with the first area appearing
PS: I forgot to say that I applied, to both images, a technique I use to make the "texture" more visible.
