Dear Marco

Well, we very may might have. Probably lost now forever.

What if the moulds were out of round, in similar fashion (actually, why would
they be perfectly round)?

There you go.

Think the mould idea would answer the oddities of impression one side to
another, by the by, and the use of templates would hardly be absurd, given
that most makers of artifacts—that are somewhat repeatable in their
making—quickly catch on to the idea of templates.

Since, it is considered, in some circles, the "earliest printed document," we
only missed out on the "earliest edition printed docusment."

But perhaps we have beaten this one to death.
