This early lead printing block is a memory of the days when typesetting was done by hand and each letter was placed in line individually.  It took hours just to set up one average size newspaper article.   This Square and Compasses emblem is 3/4 inches square and as can been seen in the above picture is molded in reverse of what it will actually look like when inked and pressed against the paper.
