Hi Giuseppe,

Although there might be some similarities, including these tiny details, the original blocks are most likely destroyed since a very long time, either because of age, use, worms or by natural disaster such as earthquakes and fire.

Only a few blocks still remains from the 18th and 19th century, held by a few museums or personal collections.

Nonetheless, none were used by these early 1900's printers. They started from scratch.
