Depends, I think on how it was printed, via lithography or with a letter press.  
If heavy pressure is used the letter shapes are almost embossed onto the page, and 
you can certainly tell it was a printed page.   
There is a new printers group started up at: 
scapnt at yahoogroups.com

And a few of us have had some experience at printing - me, very little letterpress, but via a
guild at the Museum of Print History in Houston (note to self - must do that again), and Lyonette
of Steppes does printing professionally on etched plates primarily, I think, rather than
