I am transcribing 1848 Szepes census records and came across a puzzling =
occupation. Looks like petsetmetszo (with an accent on the =
second e and diacritic over the =
final o. Metszo is the root for the word =
engrave=. Pecset with an accent on =
the second e means seal (as in official seal, not the =
mammal). Is petsetmetszo or seal engraver some kind of archaic =
occupation?
