 +
 +An epithet applied to letter, when, either through a fault in [[c:​casting|casting]],​ or dressing, it is wider at the bottom of the [[s:​shank|shank]] than it is at the top.
 +This is an old term, and as such I have inserted it; but, owing to the superior skill, or the greater care, of the present [[l:​letter-founders|letter founders]], such a thing now never occurs. ​
