    I was wondering if you’ve ever seen one of these mark-makers- the tool they used to make the imprint? It must be something like a cross between a cattle brand and an old newspaper press, where you could add or remove each character as needed.

    I’ve also photographed the one used by Rosas Brothers; it’s made of silicone rubber. — Andrew]
