Once upon a time the old fashioned printers AKA typewriters were
also traceable. Each typewriter had a unique placement and shape for
its letters thus allowing any document to be matched to a specific
machine. Of course one had to track down the machine in order to
compare it to the document in the first place. Much like now needing
to track down the location af a specific printer to see that its code
does indeed match.
The more things change ......
