We investigate the scaling properties of elastic scattering data at ISR and LHC energies, and find that the significance of an Odderon observation is larger than the discovery threshold of 5σ. As an unexpected by-product of these investigations, for certain experimentally relevant cases, we also conjecture the possibility of proton holography with the help of elastic proton-proton scattering.
