Or he could be very tired (he was 65 years old then), not be bothered to mirror letters, just engrave his name normal, which makes it mirrored when printed??


Indeed,
That would be my explanation, Tomoko.

Those strange blobs at the bottom of the Pylons
possibly indicates concrete footings, with "re-bar" Reinforcing steel.

Sorry - poor ability of my maths ... Mr. Piel was 75 years old when he engraved the stamp with mirrored name, and the database your referred told me that his last work was issued on 1966, when he was 84 years old!! Amazing engraver!!! I found that I have his work from 1964 on Philatec Paris, and admiring his matured precision right now.
